I work for the Canadian Federal Government, and I have a graduate degree in Military History.

I spend all day writing memoranda, briefing notes, and reports.  I enjoy flexing my fiction muscles occasionally.

So who, exactly, were the Cimbrians defeated by Marius at the battle of Raudian Field?  Last I heard there was some debate, but probably Germanic from the Jutland area.

I am a Underwater Engineer.  I work as a Saturation Diver for Epic Divers & Marine out of New Orleans.  I work at crazy depths and do some crazy fun stuff!  I am at my most creative when I am underwater!

I create social media content for a local restaurant chain. It's fun. I get to take pictures of really good food and write about it. And then eat it. No complaints! 

I also have a (true crime) podcast and wrote a book that came out a few years ago, although neither of those makes a whole lot of money.

I'd love to check out your podcast! And your job sounds very cool.

I'm an editor and reporter at a daily newspaper.
