What's everyone's background?

So, I have been on here for a couple weeks now and read as much in that time as I can and have seen a lot of very intelligent conversations so now the question is, what's everyone do for a living?

I'll start, I am an Electrical Engineer and Computer Systems Engineer and would like to start helping with the mpguino once i get a chance to by the parts and build it

Also, I currently work with two way radios, not much use in our current subject unless it is to recommend a radio that doesn't have a 10' antenna so we can talk to each other lol.

I started off studying Automotive Engineering Design for 4 years at university, then worked in engine design & development for Ricardo, Ford, Daewoo, Opel, Aston Martin, Jaguar etc

Then became a police officer and I'm now on a firearms team at a certain high security place.

lol, not everyone that wants to save money/fuel/enviroment has to be an engineer or automotive tech I was just curious, look at SVOboy, his major has nothing to do with his hobby yet he's what the originator of ecomodder? or one of?
