What is/was your occupation?

As I read through the manys posts by fellow 930 owners, I find many interesting livelyhoods, that owners now have or have retired from. Just thought it would be interesting to see the diversity of fellow owners & what they do for work or did for work.
I myself am a General Contractor.

Automotive fabricator, CAD + CNC design and fabrication, and engine machinist/building. Currently designing and developing my own kit car while being a stay at home dad for awhile

Used to be a retail sales manager. Man am I glad I don't do that line of work now!
