    I feel bro, I went back and got my GED so I could join the Forces and because of a certain condition that I'm not going to name they said I wasn't for the occupation. Shit broke my heart.

    I'm a "certified expert".

    I know that sounds pretentious, but that actually is my job title. I even have an official certificate from the government of the People's Republic of China with "EXPERT" stamped all over it. It makes me laugh every time I look at it.

    I also work at a couple of gyms training fighters and martial arts enthusiasts.

    When I was competing, I held a lot of different jobs, usually three or four at a time. Money was tight: factory worker, high school teacher, professional ballet dancer, art model, busing tables, fixing trucks, personal trainer, upholstery work, janitor, I taught GED classes... whatever payed the bills and put food on the table. When I started fighting, it was just another way to earn a few bucks. Now, it's something I do for the love of the sport, but when you and yours need to eat, you do whatever it takes.

    energy systems project manager. i do all sorts of commercial/industrial HVAC, controls, electrical, lighting, building envelope, UESC, ESPC, and .gov contracting - all of it has to do with energy use reduction.

    i also play bass guitar on the side.. for a while i wanted that to be my career but i never had the balls to move to nashville and give it a shot. i pick up gigs here and there to stay sharp and have fun, and i do a little session work every now and then.

    can't forget the most important job - father of 2 :)

    I'm a EMT i work 48 hours on and 96 hours off. im taking a break from muy thai traning to get my personal life together and carrier life as well. actually im getting paid pretty decant for my age the only problem is that theres going to be more cut backs on my a job. My true calling is law enforcement im leaning towards federal then local. Hell even local police around my are 1-3 years in gets paid 60,000 grand not counting overtime thats 15 grand more then i gdet paid but federal is where the money is at. If i passed the BP test when i was 19 i would of made 84,000 grand base pay with in 4 years.
