I've been here for a year and a half. 6 months on contract and 1 years FTE. Can't complain.
I own a few different companies. I guess I'm sort of a venture capitalist. We own a guitar store attached to a large online community, a men's hair product company, local cafe/bakery, and an AI thing. www.momentumventures.org
I went to school to become a LEO, joined the Army for the points (ended up Signal due to an FCC license or 3) and destroyed one of my knees so bad that I couldn't pass a PT test. My youngest sister followed in my footsteps, minus the military, and is an incredible young woman and LEO (BTW, don't mess with 5' 5" 130lb woman who carries a 1911 Commander frame as a side arm!). I spent many years in jails and prisons making all the intercoms, cameras, doors, etc integrate and work. If a CO can open a door via a touch screen on a computer, odds are it was mine. Unless it didn't work....then it was the competitors!
But as I tell my sister and all of my LEO friends (just had a bunch over last night....small but BIG party....cops were called on us....more cops came over to eat and drink) - Thank you for everything that you do...especially during these trying times. It is a scary time but rest assured that the majority of Americans have your back! It might be a silent majority right now but the grumbling is now becoming coherent and intelligible. I pray for you men and women out there. Thank you for what you do and stay safe out there!
Really appreciate the kind words!
I work for the City of Seattle's employee retirement plan. Pretty mundane desk jockeying most of the time, but it gets interesting at times after local elections. ;-)
Im a cognitive neuroscientist and a biostatistician.At work I bounce infrared light off your cornea, capture the reflection off your pupil, do some quick calculations and then I know where you are looking and can play your eye gaze track back superimposed over what ever you were looking at in my lab. So I use that equipment to understand how concussions or neurological illness affects attention, or test web pages for usability. I teach pre-med courses in basic neurology, biostat and also a course in human sexuality but my wife can tell you, Im not an expert in the last topic ;-)
I've done a lot of things in the past (mostly on computers), but these days I'm focused on making films. I'm a director, but I'm also an editor, writer, producer, I do some music for my films at least, etc.
I thought everyone here was supposed to be a doctor or lawyer though!? Judging by this thread, only a small percentage of us seem to be in those professions.
I am a software developer, but I had a passion for guitar since I was like 2-3 years old Since I had logical and analytical mind too and I liked abstractions I went into computer science field, but playing is one of the biggest parts of my life
I'm the sole operator of Vertigo Cycles and make one-off titanium bicycle frames.
I work in IT for a well known University. No, I can't get basketball tickets, cheap - not even for myself.
You need to find a student not using their tickets(if your University does that)...I know at UCONN most students sell theirs...
Pretty fookin' cool!
Year, titanium as a color for PRS...
Nice welds, bud. That's as nice as any Lynskey frame I've seen.
i know your bikes! welcome!
Thanks! I'm from MD and to be perfectly honest, is one of the reasons I bought another PRS. It's something to remind me of home. I hope we'll be moving our family back out there sometime soon.
I am recently retired - In my former life was involved with strategic planning, business development, six sigma, lean manufacturing, and finance (I guess you could say jack of all trades - master of none)
You wouldn't know from the poor construction of my posts but I work in marketing. I frequently design and write copy for advertisements. Some of you have probably seen my work.
I wish I had known. We cycled from Christ Church to Queenstown this past February.
