Not quite sure which option to pick - my main job is in print publishing, but part of it is IT/tech stuff... I also do occasional freelance work and I have a music blog.
How are you so cool. . .
Seriously, I could not be a bigger geek if I tried ;D   Oh sure, a music blog SOUNDS cool, but it turns out I write about avant jazz and contemporary classical and weird local bands who wear top hats and write circus music...  :P

Sure. In theory you should be able to click the little globe icon under my name (WORLD wide web, get it?) and it will take you to my website.

Sorry for being late; have been traveling lately.

I have the usual 9-5 office job.  The only thing that makes it a bit more interesting is the investment bank portion, mainly because of the incessant limelight; otherwise, it is mostly meetings, Excel, and PowerPoint.  I have been with 2 of the last Wall Street investment banks  in the past few years. 

I migrated from sell-side (investment banks) to buy-side (investment mgmt) recently.

Airplane pilot, in my 30s.  Hoping to retire out of the country by 50, expecting to by 55.

Excellent!  Now that job would be fun as hell.  I've got my license but backed out of taking that as a career at the last minute.  Cost of entry was high.  Sure would have been fun though.  This was back when flight attendants were stewardesses and they looked the part too.

So that's what you do for your career, but how do you make a living?  How are you eating?  Do you get food stamps?  Heheh I'm just kidding.  Mostly.  I know it's bad out there.
Marry someone who makes more than I do.  Kidding, mostly.

I'm a landlord, a high end hotel and restaurant "mystery shopper", a financial adviser, and employed as a consultant of sorts for depository institutions ranging greatly in size.

Does that mean a consultant to banks?

Something like that, yes. I can't be specific for several reasons though. But I get a lot of exposure and insights on how things work.

I have got to tell you, that sounds awesome! I only have 1 of those tasks (landlord) but am very involved with a small bank, would love to consult one day, sounds like a tough way to get in if you didnt rise up through 'the system'

Definitely. How did you manage to score a consulting job like that - especially at such a young age?

Another one in IT..

Mostly Healthcare IT consulting and application/system architecture.
A few tech and non-tech projects on the side, but not quite enough to quit my main job.
