my living on 10/28/2011 11:35:12 MDT Print View

I'm self-employed as the owner of a graphic design/media company. I design websites and other graphic materials for clients but also own On the side I write, as many of you know, wilderness cookbooks for backpackers and paddlers.

I work from home these days because that gives me the greatest flexibility between career and motherhood.

PS My husband is a Technical Service Engineer in the aerospace and automotive sectors. Geek.

My profession on 10/28/2011 23:15:58 MDT Print View

I supply an indigent urban population with delicious liquid coping skills.
Surprisingly, this is not as fulfilling of a career as it sounds. So I also pursue a degree in Philosophy and Linguistics.

I currently reside in Melbourne, Australia where for the last 20 years or so I've installed fire sprinkler systems - (Fire protection engineer ?). I'm about to relocate to Nashville, Tenn and hopefully gain work as a guitar picker/ musician. There's always the trade to fall back on..... Regards.

US Forest Service - Forest Inventory and Analysis

I bushwhack around in the woods and measure trees...mostly in Alaska while toting a loaded 12 gauge. I can say that I get paid to backpack from time to time, although it is typically not where you would go for fun... nonetheless, no complaints. I am quite amazed at the variety of occupations here actually.
