    I am a CFO?!

    I was working in logistics as a freight broker in a bigger city due to poor job availability at the time. Due to my medicinal usage of cannabis, even with a card, it made employment an issue. One day, the gentleman whom I did my internship with (also my best friend's dad), called me up and asked if I would want to do bookkeeping for a new venture. I did not hesitate to get out of my miserable job in the big city. Little did I know I would be working with the sacred herb.. In the weeks that followed, I went from bookkeeper, to CFO, to having a little bit to do with everything. It is surreal to me how much someone can feel valued in the workplace by just offering involvement. I am beyond blessed to be where I am today. I cannot determine if this is sheer luck or if the universe has a plan. Regardless, this change in employment has been life changing in many ways; all of them positive.

    Work and my first novel

    I work for a consultant engineering company--primarily stormwater, mining, construction design and permitting applications that address requirements for all governmental agencies. Lots of paperwork, calculations and Autocad. BUT, that's my day job. I just published my first novel on Amazon (here):

goddessj - whoa! I had to check your bio to see if you were who I hoped you were. HI!!! lovely to read from you! and chris - how incredibly cool for you. where is your film school?? I'm working from home this week - this living in San Diego and southwestern Colorado at the same time is pretty taxing stuff, but man, I love it. I'm still doing environmental management for the US Navy, which often looks like interpreting environmental policy and regulations.

I had no idea I'd run into you here--but no real surprise I guess, being dead.net and all... I'm still in Idyllwild, not too far from you. I did a just over a year at the newspaper in Palm Springs, then landed this gig which allows me to telecommute--sure beats all that driving and heat! Did you make the Rat Dog show on 6/28? at Fantasy Springs Casino near Palm Springs?

I am a public school principal. My love, nay, adoration, of what the Dead experience gave to me is a full fledged part of my daily interactions with kids, parents, teachers and fellow administrators. I enjoy the ride, never take myself too seriously, look for the best in the worst, make light out iof dark and try to be a prankster whwnever I can. Kids are usually a bit freaked out by my genuine joy that I try to bring every day and they always get a chuckle when they come to my office and I have my i-tunes playing in the background. I love the opportunty to show kids that open mindedness is important and that every body brings a little something to the party and that, my friends, is what makes the gig so much fun!!! Whenever kids ask me to signe their yearbooks I always write the same thing, a quote from Hunter Thompson: "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro!" Have a wonderful day!

I'm currently out of work...nearly 30 years in retail corp mgt for large regional and national chains...ascending leadership roles in supply chain management, merchandising and analysis. sometimes boring but usually not. always new problems; always challenging. I read someone in this posting refer to their job as a "white collar sweat shop"... I can relate as sometimes I've felt that way but always tried to prevent that or at least refrain from perpetuating that mind-set. One always need to manage people as you'd like to be managed. As I've progressed through my career, there are 4 specific quotes from the Dead that seem to repeatedly resonate... "If you plant ice, you're gonna harvest wind." (life, not just career for this one, for sure) "...want the cup but you're chicken to race" "don't waste your breath to save your face when you have done your best: when even more is asked of you, fate will decide the rest". "Work hard in the daytime, sure get stoned at night". (for the record, "stoned" is more metaphorical than literal... stoned = playing golf, coaching my sons' baseball teams; skiing; enjoying the company of my bride of 29 years all get me stoned these days). Anyway, if anyone has a great idea how to combine my passion for Dead, baseball, golf, skiing, with my 3 successful decades of retail leadership, for a kind, or at least similarly-minded, organization, feel free to comment to this post. Thanks

I work as a psychiatric nurse with geriatric patients in a Virginia community hospital. I've been in psych nursing since 1986, and the Dead's music has been a stress-reducing antidote to the intense emotional and physical interactions I've had with suffering people over the years. But I like my "day job" ... it's helped some patients and is a way for me to "give back" something to a part of our society that is broken and neglected. Jay

In my work as a mad scientist, sometimes it's nice to kick of one's shoes and relax to the music of the Grateful Dead or related bands. As you can well imagine, my work can be rather stressful. Making decisions in life and death situations constantly, plotting the destruction of... well, I'm not actually authorised to divulge that, but, I think you get the picture. Anyway, it's stressful. So, the music does help to relax me. One day I hope to understand what the heck they are trying to get at with all of those odd lyrics. Estimated Prophet, now that's one I can relate to in my job. The others, hmm... there must be a book out there somewhere that explains it all. I feel like they're trying to say something to us, but what? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Are you kind?"

I'm an assistant dean for planning and resource management for the division of social sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I love my job because there are lots of puzzles to solve, smart people to talk to, weird issues to contemplate, and diverse tasks to organize. It keeps me from being a dirtbag and wandering the beaches, and gives me enough money to buy strings for my electric guitars. UC Santa Cruz is also the proud repository of the Grateful Dead print and memorabalia archives that is part of our permanent library collection, making UC Santa Cruz a major point in the world of Grateful Dead research.....and I think it's so cool.

I'm not currently gainfully employed (should I even post?) My first job (while I was still at school) was working on a stall in a market selling dried fruit, muesli and woks (?!!). The job was good - I ate my own weight in dried apricots during that time! Then I went to university and graduated with a first in Classical Studies. However, I was in great danger of making a success of things at this point in my life, so I bummed around for a few years, before... ...getting a job as a support worker with adults with learning disabilities. This was the happiest working time I've ever had. The lads I supported with their day-to-day lives were so cool and we all had so much fun. I miss it bad. Anyway, the job came to an end and I got another one with a private care firm. It was hell, so... ...I packed it in and, since then, my wife and I have moved to the country and I'm in no hurry to seek paid employment: I'm currently in charge of keeping the house, cooking, cleaning, &c. It suits me and I'm satisfied. For now... "Yes and the doctor call me crazy, some says I am some says I ain't"

But in my free time I teach Scuba diving. I'm a certified Scuba instructor teach all levels up to Divemaster and five specialties, Deep Diver, Nitrox diving, Wreck Diving, Search and Recovery, and Dry suit. This is really my passion besides Skydiving, the Dead. After the Army plan to teach Scuba or possibly do the wilderness guide thing have alot of experience in mountaineering woodland survival etc. Much safer than current job.

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.

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. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "And if you go no one may follow, That path is for your steps alone..."

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.

Natural gas industry drilling in the pristine wilderness and helping to keep it that way despite what you may have read or heard. There are plenty of us in industry who want to keep it nice and neat and clean and you should be glad we are where we are because we don't just talk about it or legislate it or sign petitions. We are on the ground doing it and improving it and it is a fantastic business providing clean and plentiful energy for North America. See you in Denver. We'll power the show and provide the fuel to get you there.

If you're asking me, any of the majors are good companies. Up until a few years ago, my experience was with US based drillers but I went to work for a Canadian producer a few years ago and it's the best company I ever worked for in terms of being a responsible operator and having a great employee focus. Most of the large companies have the technical expertise and resources and are engaged in varying alternative energy sources or improving fossil fuel efficiencies. They have the budgets for these programs that the smaller operators simply don't have. Lots of opportunity in compliance related fields. The technology today is constantly evolving. I work with a lot of the "kids", mentoring them and it's been great fun. Lots of interaction with EPA, BLM, science related fields and the pay and bennies are great. There isn't nearly the level of crap to clean up that was around when I started my career and my experience the last 20 years has been that responsible operators are constantly challenged to reduce our footprint and get more out of less. We have to and we don't mind doing it. I'd recommend he scout some of the Canadian companies out.

Hey now I spent 20 years inspecting, regulating, building, remediating and trying to make a buck with landfills. i'VE composted sludge, run a recycling collection and processing center and a household hazardous waste facility. Trash was my life! Lately - the last five, I've been serious about the Gore kool-aid on the front line of regulatory policy development in the climate change war. What's your footprint?

Is suprisingly coming along better than I had hoped it would. Went this route because was sceptical of finding a regular job. It seems that the idea of offering outsourcing services to game publishers was NOT a stupid idea, in this time of crisis; when everyone seems to be looking for an alternative solution to sell/market their product.
