    When not painting, I build cars in my garage. For other people. So my truck is in the weather, not getting any love.

    Electrical Engineer for NASA. I do failure analysis mainly... It means I get to take stuff apart to see how it works (or doesn't). Can't believe they pay me to do what I did as a kid. Wasn't always great at putting it back together, but now I don't have to. I just have to write a report.
