I am a Deputy Sheriff working patrol for a well known Sheriff in Arizona. I am currently working on my degree in Pastoral Ministry with hopes to one day serve as a Chaplain once I leave my active role in law enforcement.
I am currently doing research on the influence of christian values on law enforcement and I would thankful if any of the law enforcement brothers on this site would complete a quick survey I have posted on-line at:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Beeks_LE
I also work as a Avionics Systems Engineer doing requirements management and testing oversight.
In my down time I build custom furniture and yes, pipe cabinets.

Spent 12 years in the Army, made it through 3 combat tours, only to have an angle grinder disk come apart and wreck my left hand during the fourth tour. Right now I am working part time at an auto parts store while I persue a degree in IT, Microsoft Networking is the end goal.

Being a newbie here I didn't search. Apologies. As I stated before, we have 200 milking head three times daily. Also raise up our steers and feed them out. As well as a grain operation. I'm also a beekeeper and started playing around in maple syrup.

I raise fiber animals: sheep, angoras, alpacas. About 100, along with show-quality milking goats. And I am a specialist breeder of English heritage chickens. The rest are just pets (horses) and homestead stuff (rabbits, turkeys, etc)
As my side gig, to paraphrase Mel Brooks, I'm a stand-up economist, specializing in asset backed securities (which is a fancy way of saying bonds made out of debt pools).
I'm a walking contradiction.

I spend around 3 years working in IT, as system engineer, then worked in a company doing business making and selling softwares for Industrial Maintenance Management System. I did on-site training for our customers.
Then I left my country and came to China 4 years ago where I teach English in a massive Language Learning Franchise.

I am growing a little tired of it. I am actually at a cross path and still wondering what to do.

My wife started a coffee house. I am thinking of working there to help her getting it active while still having private classes on the side.

Dunno ...
