Up until last week, an analytical research chemist for a national laboratory.  After DOE budget cuts (thanks neo-cons!) I'm unemployed and looking for just about anything.  

Planning to start graduate school next year for a PhD or MD/PhD program in some sort of biomedical science, possibly neuroscience or immunology or something.  I'm interested in so many things it's hard to narrow it down.

I'm a director of a charity dealing with alcohlics/drug addicts in the community, although I'm currently on long-term sick leave. Prior to that I was a research psychologist & lecturer in psychology. During the course of my eventful life I have also been a stunt driver, a professional musician, a hotel proprietor & a computer consultant.

Neil -

1) Thank you
2) Stop grovelling! :D

It's actually music that is once again taking up the majority of my time. Just last night I recorded a version of Air from Orchestral Suite 3 in D by J S Bach (better known as "Air on a G string"). I find playing music extremely therapeutic.

I mess around on the old joanna and a yammy keyboard when I can, (can't read music though which has certainly kept me back all these years) but for me listening to music is the only way I can relax. I am deeply passionate about it.

Trouble is with 4 kids and a wifey, it's difficult to lock myself away in the music room...I do feel guilty. Today was a treat though.. I had the house to myself for a few hours...bliss !!

Am impressed by your musical expertise and am not (by your request as per your point 2 in above post) in ' curry favour ' mode.

How can one also enjoy your version of ' air in my g-string ' ?...have you laid down a hard house east coast techno version or have you gone down the ambient route ala M Manson ?...actually....I do like classical too and would love to hear your stuff....

Ian - I like GOOD music. I don't particularly care what genre. Ambient, like other styles, has its good & its bad.

I agree, I'm not exclusive in my tastes, which range as far apart as from Opera to Dance. I was wondering if Neil liked ambient, especially the Cafe Del Mar collection.
