1yr at UNC-Charlotte School of Architecture, got kicked out for having too much fun and operating an "illicit chemicals" business on the side.

Followed that with a 7+ year apprenticeship with a jeweler in Charlotte, and I've been in the jewelry biz ever since. I've had my own custom jewelry business in Colorado Springs since '99.

If you can fuse marijuana to the tobacco plant, then I'm going to become a farmer. High yield, plus pesky helicopters wont' be able to see any funny business. I've heard you can get the tobacco plant to do anything you want.

B.S. Physics, M.S. Medical Physics

I am a medical physicist

HS flunky, GED received, 2 years in a local tech school for AST to work in the automotive field and to get my ASE certifications. Quit a few months before I was supposed to be finished. Went back to school at a community college two more times since, once for mechanical engineering and another time for computer science to begin a career in networking/IT. No degree yet, and I work in a medical lab. I'm versed in a lot of skills, just none well enough to make a career of at the moment. Still indecisive in choosing one field to stick to. Maybe before I am 30 I will decide what I want to be when I grow up...

This is pretty interesting. Good thread. OK, here goes:

BSAE
MSAE
JD

I've done a lot of different things. Started off as a Navy F/A-18 pilot. After that, worked a bit in industrial controls, went to law school and worked in patent law for about 4 years. During my time as a lawyer, I started a company that manufactures aircraft displays (the pilot displays). That's what I am still doing. Get to do lots of flying using cutting-edge equipment, lots of engineering and a little lawyering. I also dig wrenching on cars . . . always have.
