    I always enjoy these types of threads. It gives a little perspective, as well as connecting on a different level with people from all across the world.
    I'll start; I work for a large endodontic manufacturing company in a research and development testing lab. I'm located in Johnson City, TN.

    I work for a structural engineering firm in Austin, TX. I'm one of their BIM Designers. I basically model a buildings structure from the ground up and create blueprints, renderings, details, etc. I mostly do high end residential, commercial, and pedestrian bridges.

    I have a bad habit of assuming that people know what that means. Basically it’s a technical way to describe the practice of root canal therapy.

    Lamd surveyor and UAV (drone) pilot. I really just supervise the drone work. I've got two young guys who do the actual flying. I mainly watch it and stress until it's back on the ground.

    What kind of drones? I thought I was really something when I bought my Mavic Pro from DJI. I've always wondered what the professionals use.

    We have 2 DJI Inspire 1s. May end up with a Phantom 4 Pro as well. We don't want to spend 30k on a "professional" drone that does the same thing as what we currently have.

    I'm retired from the US Air Force, 14 years as a C-130 crew chief, then 6 more as a C-130 flight engineer. Currently, pretty much a full-time caregiver for my bed-ridden dad.

    Thank you for your service. And I feel for ya benig a care giver. My wife and I are constantly running between her folks place and my folks place every weekend. Her dad still gets around okay (our boys won't ride with him though!) but her mom has dementia. My mom's in faily good health but her husband has alzhiemers. It's tough watching them get worse and worse every day. And the toll it takes on thier spouses. Very sad. Hope you're hanging in there with your dad.

    I'm a buyer for a private firm that purchases and manufactures food service equipment and products.
    Tariffs are playing a big role in us looking elsewhere for sourcing purchases finished goods.

    Long before this I was a small business owner of a carpentry business for new home construction.
    2008 crash sent me in a different direction....
