    What do you do?

    As a companion to the 'University of what' thread, I thought this might be a way to get to know each other a little more also. (It must be my 'opening yourself up' period.)
    I know a lot of you already know each other, some quite well, but for the sake of those that don't, and in the spirit of open communication let's hear about what each other does for a living (and where, if you're so inclined).
    I'll start. Sales and marketing manager for S.E. Asia for an industrial application electrical product (switchgear) manufacturing Co.
    I'm based in China (South) and Travel extensively through S.E.Asia as part of my Job.
    Your turn.

    I've been living overseas for 7 years. East Asia for 6 years.

    Occupation: book reader, web surfer, beer drinker in pubs.

    All of the above are important to me, in no particular order.

    As the saying goes: "Oilfield Trash & proud of it"!
    Company I'm employed by (>30 yrs. now) is bringing another drillship to Brazil and after this contract, I might 'set the slips/lay the Kelly down' & shift back permanently to my little moo ban in Suphanburi.
