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.

I'm a musician. I have no other job. I've been doing this (music) a long time.

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.
