Hey kidz. I don't know if this is kosher on the forums or not, but I'll run it up the flagpole and see how it goes.

Call me inquisitive or just plain old nosey, but when reading through the various posts and threads, I often find myself wondering what everyone does for work, or what business they are in.

I realize that maybe to some people and maybe in some cultures, asking about someone's vocation might be considered invasive, or downright impolite; but it's pretty common in U.S. and many other places. Besides, we don't know each other's real name, so it's all basically anonymous anyway. Rest assured I mean no harm and no offense.

I'll start: I'm a commercial photographer, servicing mostly corporate and institutional clients. Basically I take the kinds of photos you might see on a company's annual report, sales brochures, etc.; or a university's recruitment materials or web sites, etc. etc.

Next! Who's doin' what?

I’m an Engineer that specializes in oil field services. :bunny:

But you are correct that for some people this question is quite invasive.

Ladies and gents..

I?m an engineer with experience from the North Sea, Egypt, South China Sea, GOM, offshore California, T&T , Barbados and the Middle East, my passport used to get filled up in a couple of years.

I?m for the time being enjoying the local seafood and I?m not going back to the Middle East any time soon. I?m at present fully invested in PBR, PZE, EC, ANR, MCP, PAL, BVN , VALE and POT.
Don?t ask me when I?m going to sell any of those because I don?t know.
