Pretty interesting. Not the engineers, because most of the guys I backpack with are engineers, but the people that aren't.

I was a journeyman welder. Went back to school, now I run the welding and metallurgy program at one of the local community colleges. I also run the metal art program. On the off time, I also am a photographer.

Environmental Engineer - designing the remediation of toxic waste sites.

I studied Chemical Engineering at Berkeley so now I'm cleaning up after my former classmates.

But I've also worked as an (exploited child) computer programmer. And have been the Treasurer of an electric utility.

Does cover all the possible geek bases?

Another lawyer but ... on 12/15/2011 05:44:45 MST Print View

Am now a finance lawyer but my first degree was in Fine Arts and English and I actually started a career as a curator before switching to law.

I also started at uni in a science degree and then switched to Arts after a couple of years - I've always straddled the science/engineering and humanities divide.

My father is a farmer/electronics engineer.

Embedded Firmware "Engineer". (Guilty as charged)

I was at Purple Lake on the JMT this summer and we had a little camp fire which attracted everyone camping there to come by. We did a poll and found that out of the 8 of us around the fire we had 6 engineers, 1 accountant, and one Microsoft PR person.

Your logic holds up :)

Similar response, guilty... I am a Controller of a real estate company with a CPA background. My skills at work do come in handy since I use spreadsheets to compare gear choices and to track the total weight of my backpack. Obsessive compulsive?? Maybe... I've got to make my pack lighter...

About to finish up my last semester of graduate school. Then (if I pass the boards), I'll be a physical therapist.

While I do enjoy school, I enjoy the amount of free time it gives me to get outside even more...

Regretfully I can't join the group of engineers/accountants. I can't even have an association through family members. I spend most of my time praticing orthopedic surgery.
