Ok, my lifestyle-support-system (borrowed expression, credit Fastricky/Rick) is Internet stuff for mobile phones. Software.

Re: What Do You Do To Ride?

I've been a visual effects artist for the last 11 years or so. It's what you do with a music degree.

Worked at Foundation Imaging on a bunch of kids shows (points if you remember Roughnecks: The Starship Troopers Chronicles and Max Steel) and the first season of Star Trek Enterprise. Went to Rhythm & Hues for a couple commercials, then to Digital Domain for a few more. I probably spent the most time at Zoic Studios, doing visual effects for Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, and Serenity to start with, Talladega Nights to end with, and a buncha stuff in between.

Now I'm a partner in my own gig, Studio Orb, flying satellites around for NASA/JPL. We're trying to expand out to all of aerospace/defense.

Re: What Do You Do To Ride?

I was a lifer in the Marines driving LAV-25's when I found out that I had Insulin-Dependent Diabetes, the Corps put me in a reserves with the 4 Tank Batallion in SD, I did construction and landscaping to make ends meet. Then I moved to beautiful Santa Barbara following a girl, got a job with the County. I am a very fortunate and I have learned not to take anything for granted. Heck my midlife crisis cost only a few thousand, a co-workers Harley cost $18,000, I got away easy.

Re: What Do You Do To Ride?

Prior to being declared disabled this year, was Technical Writer slash Documentation Specialist slash Web Administrator.

We designed and manufactured alarm and control equipment for (primarily) the phone companies. I was the one that wrote the multi-hundred page technical manuals that went with the systems. I also did a lot of traveling as an instructor teaching classes that were anywhere from three days to two weeks. I also did field installations, turn-ups, and repairs.

I'm a professional sign holder for housing tracts on the weekends and during the week pass out shopping carts at the local Wal Mart.
Happy Trails.
