Software engineer (with a love for many languages - I spent the last 12 years having written production code in Python, Ruby, Haskell, Clojure, Go and Javascript), though of late my role has moved towards more managerial/people duties vs being purely hands on.

I cook and bake a lot in my free time, and immerse in math (papers, puzzles). And of course, listening to music while I'm at it!

Been in retail my entire working life from 18 till now at 53. The past 2 decades I've been working for my younger brother - he owns a biz dealing in wheelchair and mobility equipment.

As far as hobbies aside from the audio thing I play guitar, on and off comic book geek, also into old school tabletop rpgs, long-time computer/video game fan since the mid 70s, also a fan of "weird" pulp fiction (Lovecraft, etc)

Electrical Engineer, involved with the design and manufacture of field data loggers (ADCs readings while saving data locally).

Audio has been a fun hobby and great platform to design my own custom boards for the non-standard audio application. Like the sports squash and badminton but tough to get our on court safely these days so probably back to audio :).

This is a very diverse crowd!

@House de Kris When I heard the result of finishing off the snakes plaguing you, then literally rats infesting the place as substitutes, spilled a bit of my drink.
Was that an ADULT LIBATION? If so: you are guilty of alcohol abuse. The sentence: more practice.

My career is in finance. I've worked for private equity and public finance for government agencies. I do some management/finance consulting on the side.

Other than audio my hobbies are music in general, I play the piano, love going to concerts of all types. I run marathons, I have photography as another stupidly expensive hobby where everyone argues about gear. I like great Scotch and Bourbon, great restaurants and wine. Oh, and the wife and I like to travel quite a bit.

I discovered ASR in the spring and it's been a lot of fun.

Basically, I am a social scientist, working on evaluating public policies.
I like hiking, especially in the mountains. And I train a lot. Both running and cycling. I do a lot of photography. I read quite a lot, like to watch movies and of course listen to a lot of music.
