Photojournalist. 25 years. If I hadn't given up drumming in my teens, I would have had over 30 years drumming experience and would be good instead of beginning again.

I have no "day" job, my income comes entirely from sitting behind my kit and performing.

Bearing salesperson BUT i have each &every wednesday off AND towards end of this month will ONLY work 2 days pw &i DONT work weekends so am free to play gigs! :).
Would LOVE to play 5 days pw BUT it's SO competitive with the Melbourne music scene not to mention pokies have taken over where they used to have bands playing and planning/building developers are both designing&building apartments with bedrooms facing the pubs/venues where the band(s) set up to play so you have people complaining about noise! :( even though the venue was there BEFORE they built the apartment(s) !.For me to paly 5 nights pw i'd have to play in 2-3 bands which's is difficult interms of working around them i'd also LOVE to do session work BUT i CANT&DONT read charts NOR am i disciplined enough to be TOLD HOW&WHAT to play &HOW to tune my drums.Plus the session scene in Melbourne's pretty much covered &there's NOT the work there once was with Pro-tools&home studios drum machines replacing session drummers! :(.

I work for a company that provides services to oil refineries. Catalyst services, more specifically. I work here because my chérie who is French wanted to move back to France after living with me in Holland. I used to be a customer of the company I work for now.
This was not a career move. This was all about quality of life in rural France. I never wanted to be in Sales. I'm a chemical engineer. I discovered sales is hugely interesting from lots of non technical points of view. You meet lots of people. And you get to go places, all over the world. I'm still loving it. But I'll never be a good vulture. Sales guy, pardon. Drumming is an excellent way to add more sense and fun to life.

Finally I have something to post here. I work in a plant that manufactures both Yamaha and Electro-Voice PA speaker systems. Everything is done in-house. Right now I pack boxes to be shipped out. Hardest job ever. Some of those cabinets weigh more than I do and I have to pick them up and move them. Quickly.

Paint houses for a living. My pops put my first brush in my hand when I was 4 years old. Did part-time every summer till I was 18, then full-time for a year, then I went to community college (did part-time again the days I was off or had class in the afternoons for 4 year),, after that its been a full-time job. Im 29 years old now...

I'm a mastering engineer which keeps me busy during the week.

At the weekend I run the technical side of the show at a comedy club so I can't complain with things :)

I'm in IT at a medical center. It's interesting enough, but it pales in comparison to my daydreamed life as a professional musician :)

By the way - if you guys get a chance, please check out my new cover of Accelerated Evolution by The Faceless. This song is sick and I'm pumped that I got the chance to cover it. I hope I keep up!

I'm a sales associate at K-Mart. It's not the best job in the world, but I'm only 17, and it's work. It keeps me busy after school, but it also keeps me away from my drums. I'm going to find an additional job soon so when I graduate in December I can have some extra money to pay for school (internet/computer security). But we all know that money will go towards drum gear.

I have worked as a mechanical engineer for many years in fuel cells, aerospace manufacturing, and many other mechanical engineering projects.

I am currently, for the past 4 years, working for the government in the field of intellectual property. I have the opportunityto observe and read many mechanical engineering, material science and musical instrument intellectual property documents and compare them to the current state of the art of intellectual property.
