    Architecture. With a capital A. :-)
    Mostly residential...this Primal thing is another inspiration to make what FLlWright called organic architecture --connecting people to nature while minimizing the carbon footprint.

    Driver of the spirit of capitalism in allocating resources (moneys) where they are most efficient.

    Knowledge Manager. My team includes recordkeeping, library, and even a little film crew (to record that knowledge on video).

    Most of my working life in IT. Cisco wrangler for those other geeks.

    I am a scientist - study the immune system and autoimmune diseases.

    It is a horrible time to be a scientist in the US. All your time is spent writing grants instead of doing science and there are very, very few jobs to be found.
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    I hear you--my dad was a research biochemist, great guns in the 70's, but the grant machine got ugly by the 90's/y2k. What happened?

    Trainee lawyer. The traineeship lasts two years after which we sit the bar exams. For now I have to work as a general practitioner, which is very formative but definitely not what I want to do. I'm more interested in energy law, banking law and sports arbitration.

    Any other lawyers about? I notice I have never met an american lawyer who enjoys his job, whereas europeans generally do. Is there any reason for that or do I just attract grumpy people?
