I work in the administrative offices of an urban school district, coordinating expulsions, purchasing and such, in school to get the last credits I need to take the CPA exams.
I financed power over the last year by making deep cuts, a little bit of debt financing, and some friends that gave me deals
I build decks.
As in, I am an Exterior Carpenter, quite literally a deck builder. I routinely make magic related jokes at work, which no one understands, and often make building trade references when discussing cards, which is also usually lost in the noise. But it amuses me endlessly.
UX researcher & accessibility consultant. Basically a software R&D job where I help make our products accessible for people with disabilities (low vision, blindness, limited dexterity, etc.). Before that I was in public sector research on education and disability, and taught a grad class on the topic.
I try not to spend an exorbitant amount on Magic, and I judge often so that helps supplement. Judging has paid for probably half of my legacy and vintage collection. The rest came from trading, or boosting whatever credit I acquire a events to buy something nice. I think I paid $80 total when I bought my Lotus and Walk. The rest came from banked credit with SCG (who is very good to their staff, btw).
I went to University in Halifax for three years for Psychology and Contemporary Studies(fancy way of saying 'newer' philosophy) before seeing the writing on the wall for the Canadian Economy. I withdrew after my third year to take Heavy Equipment operating as a trade. Just finished a two year stint at that and I'm now trying to improve on my PTQ 2nd place finish that I put up before the new structure of ptqq/rptq before returning to school.
I am an attorney with the California Energy Commission, a state agency with various responsibilities relating to energy and efficiency policy, including regulating the efficiency of appliances and buildings, permitting power plants, providing grants for RD&D, etc. I'm a jack of all trades around here, but basically I try to make things more defensible and suck less. For several years, I served as a policy advisor for one of our Commissioners.
