I am retired now as a result of disability but I am proud of the fact I was able to work for 30 years despite being disabled since birth. My body gave out on me. Most of my career was in the insurance industry. I dealt primarily with Workers Comp.
I try to read lots to keep up with insurance and financial information and I now manage most affairs for my elderly mother. Lots of insurance issues to deal with related to claims so I am right at home.

I'm a university professor. Got my MS and PhD degrees from the University of Minnesota, St. Paul, in Botany and Plant Pathology. I teach Microbiology, Medical Microbiology and Emerging Infectious Diseases. You can read up on me at ratemyprofessors.com. My research is on the evolution of filamentous fungi using DNA sequencing tools and bioinformatics. I've published 18 peer-reviewed scientific papers, most as senior author. My website is: http://www.eboehm.com. At the moment I'm between jobs.

Kash. I'm so disappointed. I didn't see ONE freaking pipe on that website.
You could have put the Comoy section right between the Hysterocarina and the Psiloglonium.

LMAO Jah! Maybe I'll do just that. Altho smoking is a big no no in academia. Can't imagine why with the likes of Einstein no less puffing away at Princeton. LOL. Ah well ... the past was better. Always better than the present. And what the future portends. Going for a job interview this week in NYC. Wish me luck.

Thanks Roth. Much appreciated. For the interview they want me to teach a chemistry class for 45 min. Topic? Global warming and its effects on NYC. Got to put on my Al Gore hat for that one. The hoops I jump through for a paycheck. LOL.

I am currently a student. I am a writer although I need a new computer, one of my own, lost all of my stories and books that was on my old one. I also will be going to college for a short term art certificate in drawing from beginner to advanced, with painting as well so I can get my tattoo apprenticeship. Then I will use money from that to pay for the various college degrees I want, because I have a deep thirst for knowledge. I already found a guy who would make a mobile tattoo studio in a bus, and my friend parties a lot with people who want tattoos. 50 dollars for the smallest tattoo, hundreds of people at these parties, so we should be able to make good money

I'm the office Administrator for a large Mechanical Contractor. While the work itself is usually mundane, the construction workers generally keep me entertained with their antics, and my coworkers are great people with an even greater sense of humor.

Sucks on losing everything. You need to look into Dropbox and Google Drive. I double backup everything to both places. And I have apps for both on my phone so I always have everything. No need to carry around a laptop looking for a plug or forgetting your flash drive in someone else's computer.

Kash - many friends have told me that I'm a funguy - perhaps you should do a paper on me.

My primary job is a firefighter. I've been doing this for 9 years and have been an engineer (driver) for most of my time. My engine covers a large retirement community, 3 hotels, 2 college campuses, 2 highways, 1 nursing home and several other gated communities. Oh and another nursing home and a dialysis clinic is under construction. My company is generally the busiest in the county with around 2000 calls per year.
My department has a 24/48 schedule so on the side, I work for another firefighter pressure washing houses. When I'm not doing that, I own and operate a mobile vehicle detailing business. I also have a job offer instructing at a friends flight school once I get my flight instructor certificates.
Just a little busy.

By day I'm a systems analyst for a major hospital, but I'm also on the board of directors for a small, non profit dog shelter. We take in strays, owner surrenders and pull dogs from death rows of local pounds. In 2012 we found forever homes for 105 dogs. This past weekend we found homes for 4.

I am a manager at a retail sporting goods chain. I like it but Im always looking for something new. I used to build sets for broadway productions (Mary Poppins, Don Giovanni, several ballets to name a few), museum exhibits and traveling exhibits (Norman Rockwell was a cool one), Amusement parks (several rides for Universal Studios and Hershey Park), and set up parties and trade shows. I also worked at Arizona State maintaining all the physical sciences labs and buildings as well as designing and fabricating equipment for the labs. I honestly miss working with my hands and the critical thinking and problem solving I did. Now I deal with customers and very young part time employees Im very good at it but its not my dream job by any means.

Do you instruct at a large school or a smaller one? What plane do you typically instruct in and what airline are you looking at?
I went to ATP in Jax a couple years ago and stopped short of instructor because I herniated a disc and just haven't made it back yet to finish up... I'll probably need a biannual actually since its been that long.

magoo65,
I instruct at pretty big aviation academy, around 350ish students, close to 100 instructors and probably around 60ish airplanes.
We use Piper Archers for private and instrument, and the Seminole for CPL me. Lately, I've been flying the Seminole a lot (literally, I just got back from a night flight).
As far as the airlines go, my number one pick would be Skywest, followed by Express jet and then probably Eagle.
If you are interested in flight instructing, I would highly recommend big flight schools with a lot of students.

Phoenix area is one of the best places to instruct, great weather and a lot of big flight schools.
Please let me know in case you have any more questions.
BTW, our flight school is always hiring:)
