A recent comment about an audiophile firefighter in another thread prompted me to wonder about our own respective careers. I’d be very interested in learning what you all do or did to make a living, if people are willing to divulge. I’ve searched on the word “career” and didn’t get any relevant hits.
I’m happy to begin. I’m a registered architect with 43 years of practice experience. I’ve spent the last 8 years as a building code official for the state of Indiana, and I’m now into my 5th year as State Building Commissioner, a gubernatorial appointment. I expect to retire in two more years, hence the recent “last gasp” updating of my modest system - soon regular wages will be gone.
Anyone else care to join in?
