Welcome to the SoCal Head-Fiers group. When you get a chance, please introduce yourself to the rest of the group. I'll start.
Many of y'all know my story already. I kind of fell into Head-Fi when I started doing a lot of commuting by train a couple of years ago. From lurker to poster to moderator to meet organizer and beyond, Head-Fi has been my main hobby over the course of the past year or so (outside of listening of course). These days, I even dabble a bit in audio journalism... but that's a whole other story.
In my day job, I'm a mild-mannered consumer electronics product developer. What that means is that some company will tell me they want a product of a certain type to compete in a certain space. If it exists, I source it. If there's something kinda like it, I develop it. If it doesn't exist, I design it. And if need be, I'll pull engineering resources to engineer it. It's creative, fun, and challenging - but hey, it's a living.
M'lady Christine and I have been together for 15 years, and we have our little mutt Toby, but no kids.
