Very cool Byron.

I'm over 30 and living with my parents. Why leave when mom makes the best peanut butter jelly sandwiches. Between jobs right now...4 months ago I worked semi part-time delivering pizzas. Got canned, had a real problem getting them to the customers under 30 minutes. Hehe, just kidding...

I'm an IT Consultant, SAN Storage/BURA Engineer to be specific. Wanted to be a doctor, but decided against spending what seemed like a lifetime in school.

If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing.

Civil Engineer and Land Surveyor.

There's little better than being outside, often in the woods, often using 4WD to get there, using the latest technology - robotics, gps, laser scanning - and every single job starts as a treasure hunt for monuments set far back as hundreds of years ago (my personal oldest is a cedar stake [think fence post] set in the 1850s)...

My father and I own and operate Applebee's in the metro Atlanta area, and we've recently started a new restaurant called Up the Creek Grill which we are franchising now. I am also a helicopter pilot.
