in the summer in NY. i'm an independent contractor, mostly carpentry/masonry. all around handyman.

in the winter i drive to colorado and teach skiing, mostly kids/teenagers. i think the youth of our nation have a better sense of humor.

i have never paid more than $500 dollars for a daily driver.

Looks like I'm an odd one in this bunch. I'm a 4th year philosophy student, and in the past I've been a courier (with my old '93 Metro) and worked at Domino's pizza as a driver/manager. (Driver paid better, sadly) I suppose that putting on an average of 50,000km a year is part of what got me interested in fuel economy, but efficiency has really always been an interest of mine anyway.

Oh, and for my hobby I play DDR/ITG - those crazy "dancing" games you might have seen at the arcade.

(if you have no idea what I'm talking about.)

Camus ROCKS!

On occasion I play Taiko-drums in Little Tokyo, but I'm lame on the dancing games.

I'm a furniture designer / maker and design instructor, working in wood, metal and glass. Self taught in almost everything. Built my own glass kiln and Glass blowing studio.

I was taking stuff apart as soon as I could hold a screwdriver. I did a ground up restoration/customization of a VW bug when I was 18 including paint and bodywork. Now I get creative with my furniture and home (self built for under $30 000 so far)

First Job was a gas jockey, second was a car detailer, third was a woodworker. Quit the woodworking job and started independent at 25. still going strong.

I have two bright orange 70's Auranthetic Charger electric minicycles which offset the crappy mileage I get from my otherwise beloved Toyota Previa

"The Golden Egg" is why I'm here

i am a student
and part-time i work in food service, we create soooooooooooo much trash we joke around sometimes (because we throw large quantities of food out and we want to give it to a homeless shelter) how it takes alot of strength to throw large quantities of food out.

Ecomodder helps me save some of that precious cash.
