I am a pressman, or for all you titilists out there, i am an offset wedge press operater. I print things anywhere from business cards to calenders, to magazines. I am a computer hobbyist in my spare time. I don't have any schooling in it, but i love messing with my pc.
Not as exciting a title as some of you guys, but to each their own right?! :P

I run a non-profit health organization on a Native American reservation about 100 miles from everywhere.
Technically speaking, I can say I'm the CEO, President, and Chairman of the Board, but as the only paid employee it really isn't saying much.
My work hours are really wierd, so some days I can play games all day and some weeks I hardly have time to eat.

I spend a lot of time begging corporations, governments, and tribal entities for money.

I'm a certified teacher, currently working on my PhD in Health Education and Promotion in a certain psychology-based department. My focus of study is game psychology, with particular emphasis on physical activity promotion, though to be honest it's all about the context in which you read the literature, and I'm usually applying that to video games before physically-active games.

The general idea is to help the preventative health industry do a better job of keeping people active, though good cops make the best criminals, and I could easily be dissuaded to the dark side of making video games more addictive. Bwahahaha.

Bwaha...

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

I make sure anything from coils of steel to $10M turbine jet engines get loaded properly, and where it needs to be on time. All from the safety of my cozy little office, where I have my personal laptop sitting right next to my other monitors, and take 1 guess wha I'm doing on that laptop? (ok 2 guesses, cuz no, it's not ****!)
