Well...I have a college degree in mechanical engineering and an English translator official certificate - engineering has developed me as an individual and I do not regret the fact that I have studied this smile.gif

Early this year, I have started a small web/ graphic design company (after trying to focus only on music for a few months - I guess it's not yet possible, BUT ONE DAY!) with a friend. I am also teaching offline, playing with Voodoo and Aria and occasionally at 'Mozart Rocks!' - since it's a big event, it only happens a few times a year.

These are my main activities alongside GMC, which has slowly become a very important aspect in my life

Web applications developer - was studying CS at university then got offered this job unconditionally - took it, dropped university now I'm doing this and running a business with another MD / CEO (not related to my primary job at all) on the side. Since then, barely any time to play guitar - but I've literally given my weekends up now to play guitar and just that (playing twice a week for 7 hours a day).

Austin Ventures / Whaleshark Media UK Ltd (Yes they are related to the massive corporation in the US biggrin.gif)

I have a BSEE degree from the University of New Mexico. Then I got my MBA from University of Reno. I've worked as a digital electronics engineer doing circut design at board and chip level, then moved into software. I worked as a Software Engineering Manager for 7 years before deciding that my passing is as a designer/developer so I went back to engineering. I'm currently a Staff Software Engineer at a large gaming company.

Wow, lots of software developers.

I am also a software developer smile.gif I work in the insurance industry and in my spare time I am trying to munge music/programming/helping people together into something profitable and satisfying.

I really want to be able to make a difference to peoples lives you know? To actually contribute something positive, I think music is the perfect vehicle for that.

I went to a two year college to get a degree in computers. I wanted to make my life with computers. I earned an Associate of Applied Science in Information Systems Technology - Microcomputers. I graduated with highest honors. Computer jobs were hard to come by around my area of farmlands. I sought a job at places that were not computer-related because I soon really, really needed a job.

I now have been working at Walmart since September 26th of last year. I was hired as a cashier, intending to only make this my holding place until I found a job that was "me" in the computer field. I quickly found out that I loved people much more than computers. biggrin.gif You can reason with a computer, but at least with people you can talk with them and find out the problem. I found out I have tons more patience with people than computers. If the computer freezes...OOOH!!! :{ But I am such a people person and I enjoy the thought of helping people all the time at a company.

I am now on my way to making Walmart my career. I have been working overnights stocking shelves, just trying to get some more experience. I hope to be a department manager one day, or perhaps a store manager! My store manager is working with me to get me where I want to be. Mangers notice those who desire to be a part of the company. wink.gif That's why he offered this open door to overnight stocking. I have learned so much in the recent days!
