Welcome to Dyxum gamer! Crysis was the last video game series I played, actually never did beat the final boss in 3 but it only took a couple days to get there, got disappointed it was already over so left it be. Then a friend turned me on to Kerbal Space Program a couple years ago and have no desire to play anything else, actually don't play that much anymore anyways but it's a great space mission simulator, NASA even endorses it.

After getting my PhD in Astrophysics I joined a small company that produces optical components.

I'm in charge of the lab where mirrors undergo corrective polishing and of some of the optical tests

As much of a surprise as my artistic alter-ego might be to many of my colleagues, I have a feeling that some of you would be equally as surprised to discover that for my day job, I'm a law enforcement officer (deputy sheriff).

It's quite the contrast of worlds, but both suit me equally well in their own respects. It is rather funny when one of my fellow deputies learns that I have a permanent place in a respected art gallery downtown, though.

I do attempt to keep the local art community from learning what my full-time profession is, though. Too much animosity and emotionally-based negative bias, unfortunately. Thankfully, the question rarely comes up outside of other artists in the gallery who I interact with on a regular basis.

Though I did have an awkward moment where I ran into a college senior art student that was displaying her senior thesis project at the gallery one day while I was working. She was noticeably uncomfortable/unquieted when she recognized me. Sucks, but I suppose that's just the way it goes...

Still working in IT, but now as an internal consultant in a large glass-making company. I'm pretty excited to be back working directly in industrial activities, as it had been back when I was a student.

More specifically: I'm a SAP functional consultant on production planning.

Still wishing I could take a lot of photographs when visiting factories!

(I had missed some posts here, it's fascinating to see the diversity of occupations!)

Oh my! We are so embedded in SAP - it does everything from running Production Planning through to Payroll and other integrated tasks - I suspect it really does make the coffee as well! I work in Regulatory Affairs and all our data for compliance etc. is logged in there - it's an absolute minefield to get to what you want sometimes (but, as an intermittent user, I guess familiarity is key with it).

I admire you having a mind that can deal with the intricacies and systematic logic of the whole thing

Best regards, Neil.

Haha I'm not sure I deserve this compliment. But since SAP is hugely integrated and with so many functions, it means that most consultants are highly specialized on their topics :)

And, hopefully, paid accordingly...?

Salaries are usually good yes, and can go very high based on expertise and project management experience (and it's ludicrously high if you're employed in Switzerland ) - it's not where I am yet xD
Mostly the advantage is that currently there's no unemployment in this sector of activity. Many companies struggle to fill open positions (which is common in IT I guess). It's even more true now that the economy seems to be going much better than when I started a few years ago.

While a student, there is a small side job, but nothing worth mentioning;)

Welcome, Craoul! There should be some time left to take photos (and post them here)!

Hello! I didn’t see a mention anywhere, so I missed this message, I'm sorry, yes, I completely abandoned the photo for quarantine, somehow there is no creative inspiration.
