im working on my last year of high school. after this i plan on going to college to study mechanical engineering.

as far as a job, the only ive ever held was a summer job as an electrician building houses. pretty cool to do at 16 but its not what im looking to do with my life.

Drummer mostly, live and sessions that tend to be classic rock/metal, occasional indie/pop, partner in a small custom drum company that also deals in vintage Premier supplies, occasional record producer, occasional writer of drum related articles and very occasional agency truck driver when there's nothing on TV. Just finished a UK tour as Thomas Lang's drum tech.

I really want to be a full time breast inspector.

I've just finished my high school and going to study Law at the university.
During this summer, I was a volunteer in France and I still work as a security service in a shopping gallery in my city.

I help design Oil and gas rigs in the north sea. I work on the comouter systems that create the rigs. Interesting stuff in itself.

Oh and I play semi-pro in a band too. 8)
