Truckin'

I work for an engineering company that designs wastewater treatment equipment. Among other things, I coordinate shipping and delivery of everything to the jobsites. From the tiniest nut & bolt to big honkin' steel pieces. It's almost fun, except my bosses are very, um, straight. I also do some accounting for them, and that's no damn fun at all.

I also make and sell beaded jewelry, chain maille jewelry, soldered glass pendants, and rocks at craft shows around PA/MD/VA. (yes rocks. Kids love rocks. I love the kids who love rocks, and the parents who give them money to buy the rocks they love)

It's fun selling fun stuff to people. Almost reminds of the grilled cheese days.

I'm a Stay At-Home Dad a.k.a. MR. MOM!

I was a History High School teacher. We have 2 girls and my wife makes more money than a teacher, so with the high cost of daycare; we didn't want to have strangers raising our kids if we could help it.

Being a stay at-home Dad is probably one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs I have ever untaken. By the way, I was in the ARMY for 3 years.

I'm applying to Grad School (USC and Univ of Wisconin-Madison), both on-line programs.

I would love to do some writing, part-time from home, if anyone is looking for help; please let me know.

Thank you so much.

Engaging students in higher order thinkin'

I've got a great gig working with high school students, officially I teach special ed English and Math but really, what i do is try to show them that somebody gives a hoot about them. Then, we can work on more important stuff, like readin' writin' and 'rithmetic. Oh, and trying to sneak in some real education about the Dead. Most of today's kids have no idea who or what the Dead are all about. Today, first day back from break, I was carrying on excitedly about the upcoming tour, and I got comments like "Aren't they British?" "Aren't they a hard core metal band" and "isn't their music depressing"

Oh, they have a lot to learn.

Vocation

I currently do CAD design of composite components for the aerospace industry.
My avocation is working with glass; casting, slumping and fusing, but I haven't really had a chance to pursue this enough lately. My soul is getting hungry!
