I'm a full time cop for the past 24 years and specialise in motor vehicle collisions for now. Used to be riot cop, VIP protection, canine trainer etc. Part time knifemaker since 2000 and member of the SA knifemakers' guild. Hobbyist pipemaker since some time last year but like knifemaking this is also threatening to become a fulltime proffesion.
Oh, and co-owner of a small horseriding school. My wife is the other partner Sad .

This is the first time I scrolled down this far on the page to see this forum on the sight. Good idea.

I am in the Recruiting business. My wife and I have two businesses in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area. One is an Executive Recruiting company and the other is a Temporary Staffing company. Yes. There really are jobs out there!

I'm actually a former design student at Parson's NYC. I have a background in interior and furniture design. My father got sick mid way through my second year and being an only child I returned to take over his used car dealership.

Laughing I'm a plaid suit wearin' used car dealer folks! As for my dad, he's been in remission from leukemia for nearly a decade. At almost 80 y.o. he still comes to work EVERY day! Laughing

Don't feel bad. I started out as a Chef, moved into car sales, and now I work for a car dealership consultant and trainer.

Every time the boss asks what I'm doing, I respond, "Selling you." Everybody in the office thinks that's hilarious for some reason.

I've been in the automotive body repair field for about the last 15 yrs. I've been at the same shop for the last 3 yrs. I started doing body work cause that's what I love. But, about a year and half ago we lost our painter and I was asked if I wanted the position. So, I'm now the painter at Total Quality Paint & Body in Anniston, Alabama. I have to say I love my job and enjoy going to work every day.

I'm a computer forensics specialist with the Canada Revenue Agency (our version of the IRS) in the Criminal Investigations Directorate. Started out as a tax-fraud investigator (accounting degree), went back to school part time and got 'edgeekated' in Information Security at Royal Holloway and been doing my current gig since 1992.

Been with the "firm" for 37 years and now looking to retire shortly. I hope to spend more time to pick up my guitar(s) again after I retire.

@Oliver

I picked up a documentary on iTunes the other day called Reclaiming the Blade you may be interested in.

To anyone who says that we aren't a diverse bunch... a Canadian tax authority has got to be the last person you'd expect on a tobacco community!

Even after years aboard, I learn something new and dig this place a little more.

I'm a former nuclear physicist, F1 race car driver, Antarctic explorer, Air Force test pilot, Playboy centerfold photographer, and NSA supercomputer designer who's now gone undercover for the CIA as a pipe repairman in the international hotbed/political intrigue capital of the world... western North Dakota. Why the switch? It's so much more exciting than that earlier stuff.

I own MB Classic Sports Car in Cincinnati, Ohio. We are a service and restoration shop which specializes in vintage Ferrari, Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz automobiles.

I founded the company in 2003 after finishing b-school. Rather than go into banking, my original intent, I decided to take a leap of faith and pursue my lifelong passion and haven't looked back since.

Stop by and say hi and to enjoy a pipe and some wonderful cars if you're ever in the Cincinnati area!

cheers

We do have a website although it's presently being redone. Here's what we have in inventory at present:

-1947 Jaguar 3.5 litre DHC
-1959 Mercedes-Benz 190SL
-1964 Mercedes-Benz 230SL
-1970 Porsche 911T coupe
-1974 Citroen D Super 5 (I personally imported this car from England, one of six in the country)
-1978 Daimler DS420
-1980 Ferrari 308GTB
-1981 Ferrari 308 GTS/i
-1983 Ferrari 308GTB Quattrovalvole
-1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL

You are welcome to ring me on (513) 519-7302 if any of these sound enticing. Alternatively, if you have something particular in mind, we can usually dig it up!

I am hopeful our website will be back up and running within the next few days...

Meanwhile, here's a shot of the workshop with a few of the steeds abound. We have two other buildings chock full!



Cheers,
Aaron

Coming late to this thread. Can't believe but it looks like I am the only Aggie!!

I have worked in agriculture for a little over 30 years, originally as the Canadian agronomist for a large fertilizer distributor, then moved to USA as president of a small fertilizer manufacturing company. I am now the USA business manager for a precision agriculture company, we provide computer software and consulting services that provide prescriptions for optimum amounts of seed, fertilizer, pesticides and other products used in farming. All based on maps we generate from satellites. High-tech farming.

I am the manager of a tribology laboratory focusing on aeronautical components. I have been in this field since 1997. It has led me around the world at times, and provides for just enough travel to tame my, now on the decline, wander lust.
