intro

What is your field of work/job- or one you'd like to be in?

I'm a safety officer for a smallish privately owned trucking company. I have a great boss, great co-workers and a good atmosphere. On the down side, I'm very overworked and frequently overwhelmed.

What's "alternative", unconventional or "weird" about you?

I'm a LARPer (amtgard mostly) I'm a total gaming geek, I'm a Zen Buddhist, I'm poly and I'm bi. I used to be a total goth, but much less nowadays.

What kind of experiences have you had (positive/negative) as an alternative professional?

I didn't fit in with one corporate culture, and was eventually downsized for it. They're pretty accepting here.

Where do you live- in terms of the cultural atmosphere?

I live in Omaha, NE. A very repressed and republican town. Not really open-minded surroundings, however I've never really suffered for it.

That's interesting. I've found that some out-of-the way places are sort of live and let live. I liked Nashville a lot for that, though it's a fairly large city (I'm from Chicago. Big city means BIG city). Most of the South was like that, in my experience. They might not agree, but generally they just shake their head, say: to each his own and let it end at that. Some places scared me, though. South Carolina had some areas that just creeped me out. Glad NE is working for you.
