I do lot's of things. Most of which are not gainful employment.
I prefer to look at the stars, go hiking in the mountains, listen to the Dead, hang out with friends, go for a bike ride, read poetry, play the guitar.
However to pay my bills I work as a Registered Nurse at a non-profit mental health agency.
Before this I was the Conservation Director of an environmental group that worked on forest and wilderness issues. I have gone between these two worlds for years. I have had some great but stressful jobs.
I continue to be involved in conservation, wildlife, forest and wilderness issues as a volunteer for the Sierra Club.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)

I work at Richland Newhope Center, and provide adult day services for individuals with MR/DD. It's a very rewarding job. It's not something that just any person can do-you defenitly have to have a heart for it. I absolutly love it. I know I'm making a difference in individuals lives everyday.
I own Cosmic Tattoos in Charlotte, NC.
My wife is the lead artist and a head as well.
We love to meet new Deadheads and all Grateful Dead Tattoos are up to 50% off.
You must be able to pass a simple quiz. Depending on your knowledge level of the dead, the more you know the higher the % you get off your tattoo.
Cool custom designs will also help the %.
Great personality will also help the %.

I install new telephone systems in U.S. Embassy around the world. Both new ones and existing ones. I also help out testing the internal speaker systems for general announcement by plugging in my MP3 player and playing some Dead. Great way to check to see that each and every speaker in the Embassy is working. Of course I can only do this after hours, A lot of State Department people are lacking in any sense of humor. I have also been known to brief an Ambassador or two while wearing some tye-dyed GD t-shirts. That and an pony tail really seem to get to them :)
