    I'm what the state of Arizona calls a "Licensed Clinical Social Worker"... I met my wife in the Master of Social Work program at Arizona State, graduated in 2007 (the year before she did). She's now a CPS Social Worker for the Salt River Pima/Maricopa Tribe here in metro Phoenix. We have a 3 year-old son and a 2 year-old daughter. The class we met in was titled "Diversity and Oppression" - significantly funnier if you know that I'm white and she's black.

    I have two jobs right now, one as a salaried therapist for a smaller HIV/AIDS service organization and one as a contract therapist for another, larger HIV/AIDS service organization. The money from both jobs plus my wife's keeps us above water, but it makes for long weeks - Mon is an 11-hour day and Tues more like 14. Wed-Fri are a respectable 10.

    Salaried job we do a lot of substance-abuse work, we have an intensive outpatient group that I facilitate every once in a while but my real love is 1:1 therapy. In the contract job that's all that I do. The HIV thing I just kind of fell into as a therapy job that was open when I was looking, and now my experience and skillset is in substance abuse, HIV/AIDS, and GLBT issues (especially transgendered). Kind of strange for a straight, HIV-negative guy who isn't in recovery.

    Just got my independent license (literally just, like last Friday it was all finalized), and now I'm moving toward starting a private practice - dealing with insurance panels, malpractice insurance, renting a space and developing clientele... all the while trying to maintain both jobs, a home, a wife, and two children (who are my world).

    Oh yeah, and I'm in a car club too.

    Great idea for a thread, Edog. I also thought you painted cars for a living and it's interesting to hear these stories.

    My story- I tried to do the college thing but dropped out early into it. Moved out on my own and went to work for an Uncle making crowns and bridges (fake teeth). Learned the joys of working in a family business and that it wasn't for me.
    Tried learning to bend neon in another Uncle's sign shop but that didn't really work out. I rented a spot in a local co-op and sold Antiques this entire time, mostly old radios and then jukeboxes but also whatever I found at flea markets and auctions.

    I took a few computer classes on my own and found a crappy 3rd shift job mainly delivering reports with a company that had a Computer Programmer Trainee Program. Ended up landing a spot as a paid Trainee for a year, then a Programmer, then a Programmer/ Analyst. Then the Y2K scare hit and being a computer geek with experience was pretty Rock Star as weird as that sounds (although there was never a Computer Programmer American Gladiator- go figure).

    After everyone realized that the world wasn't going to end with Y2K, I took a job at a company that I was consulting for and have been there since. It's a decent gig and not corporate schmuckdom. I'd love to do something on my own and have tried a few side ventures, but there's something to be said for having a steady paycheck and healthcare and benefits.

    Old cars were involved in the picture in some form since I moved out at 19 and bought a bug for $500 as my daily.

    Not a thrilling story and it leaves out oceans of booze and rooms full of crazy women, but there it is.

Put us through hell but we never stopped loving him. He died at 54 years old. Broke my heart.

    Alright, me next. Grew up between Az and Fla. Was a really sick kid. Had Chronic Asthma so my folks moved me out to Tucson which did wonders for my health. That and discovering skateboarding. We moved back to Fla when I started High School. Had no interest in school so spent most my time skating and traveling. Didn't really sit well with my Mom so she gave me the boot when I was 16 (1993). Shortly after bought a greyhound ticket, sat on a bus for 3 days and ended up in So Cal. Wanted to pursue the skate dream. Ended up working out. Got sponsored, eventually pro, just traveled, partied, skated. In 2000 blew my knee out while on tour in Europe for 4 months. Did it pretty early on so ended up just staying on the tour for the ride. Last stop was London. Stayed with a Homie there and met my future wife, one of his flat mates. We got hitched after about a month and it's been almost 10 years. My wife is magical. I love her more than life itself and I'd be lost with out her. Plus she's a saint for putting up with my ass. Lived in London for a while doing bar work. Trying to figure out life after skateboarding. Then to Italy which is were my wife is from. Just traveling, parting. etc. Eventually ended up back in Fla. Got into construction with my pops. Metal framing/carpentry. Gave a business a go building custom homes. Built the mother of all houses then the ass end fell out of the market and still stuck with that fucking thing. Not to mention another home that's a noose around my neck. After construction fell back into the skate industry. Got into the sales side of things which I'm thankful for. Growing up the way I did and the lifestyle I led for so long makes it hard to conform to civilian life. So been in Sales in the skate world for the past 5 years or so. Moved to AZ about a year and half ago for a job. The car bug was always in me. First car was a 66 Fairlane. Dad was a biker so I grew up around cars and bikes.

    grew up in Sun Valley, somehow survived that.
    I lied a told the neighbors I could paint cars just so I could learn how, then proceeded to get over spray all over our family home garage, (and I think I got some paint on my brother Abel's "Summer Madness") I worked at Pick Your Part as a tow truck driver then I worked for Gene Winfield doing body work and making fiberglass mercs. I needed more money then Gene could pay, so, I got a job with the city of L.A. as gardener then promoted to truck operator, then to storekeeper. now I work for LAPD. I buy and maintain a warehouse on behalf of LAPD Air Support , worlds largest rooftop heliport. I hope to retire in 8 years.
    I meet my wife while working as a truck operator her first day on the job. we have been married for 15 amazing years. she's the best thing to ever happen to me. she has a masters degree from Azusa Pacific, and she just completed a PhD program with Regent University in Organizational leadership and human resource development.
    we are D.I.N.K.'s (double income no kids) and love it. neither of us felt the need to procreate, hats off to those that have kids, its A LOT of work.
    my older brother Babe worked for Watson and Walt, and my brothers Able and Javier (rip) have built some amazing lowriders while I drive primered junk!
    I did a lot of restoration (rust repair) work out of my shop at home but most of it has been muscle cars , tri 5's, and older MG's etc. all of it for other restoration shops that never told the customer they outsourced the work. I still do some but mostly for my self now.

    Seriously, it is great that so many of you have been successful in controlling your addiction. Its something that I have seen too much of in my life. Although never diagnosed, I know that I was an alcoholic for much of my twenties. I just lost my cousin to an heroin overdose a few months back, we had grown apart, but it hits me more and more each day. Shit, I have had a lot people that were and are still very close to me that have struggled with addiction, several that will probably never come back.. My fiance, is finishing up her PHD as a Behavioral Scientist and her main focus is meth and alcohol addiction. Its amazing how genetically a person can be completely wired to be an alcoholic from their very first drink.. crazy.

    My turn now.

    first let me say I respect and admire people who overcome addictions and I have much love for those people who are working for themselves.

    Now to me. I am an Army brat born in Germany. When I was 13ish (sophmore in HS) we move to Williamsburg Va. My Junior year my infatuation with all things 60's and 70's took me to becoming a Deadhead. Never traveled far (3 states) to see concerts but man did I enjoy the LSD and pot. After graduating HS I tried college but dropped out after 2 years because it bored me to tears. My summer job in HS was working at Busch Gardens one year and then at Kingsmill Golf Course the next year, so when I quit school I went back to the golf course and worked there for 2 years. I did that as a regular laborer for a while till I got the chance to work at a golf course still being built. After a few months there alot fo stuff was breaking down so I offered to be the mechanic and that started my career path. In 97 I had some family visit from Germany and they offer to put me up if I wanted to go there and go back to school so I took that chance and went there and studied Landscape design till 2000 when I graduated and moved back to Va. Once I got back and had all this cool European knowledge of landscape design and installation I tried to do it on my own with little success. Got the chance to go back to a golf course as a mechanic and took it. Moved to Raleigh in 2002 to work at a high end golf course. Hopped around to a few other courses to make more money and now I work for the John Deere Dealership but I am working full time at Duke Universities golf course due to a service contract with the dealership. As for the cars thing... Dad was a Helicopter mechanic in the Army and always had some old car to work on. The first car I actually worked on was a 50 Chevy Deluxe 2dr we had. Dad went off on Army training stuff for a week and while he was gone I pulled the motor apart at age 12. He also had a 58 Mercedes 190SL at the same time that we both worked on and we would go to shows in Germany all the time. That was in the mid 80's and I remember seeing my first 57 Chevy and 30's Sedan Delivery sitting side by side and told my dad that I wanted a car that looked like those 2 squeezed together (he reminded me of that when I got the 55). In 2003 I helped a friend install Air ride on his Toyota and have been installing that stuff for people since then on the side. In 2008 I decided to open my own business selling and installing Air Ride because NC was severely lacking in that area, now I know why because there is not much interest in that stuff yet, but I am hoping that will change.

    thats my story in a shortened overview.

    I was born in Iowa, moved to Colorado with my family when i was a kid. After high school I ran forklifts for work and moved to Tucson, AZ for college but i wasn't focused and ended up moving back to colorado for work. Work then took me up to Montana. At 23 I landed a job as a district manager/sales rep for a cabinet company. A few years later I moved into medical sales/service and I've been in that field for nearly ten years. I ended up moving to Seattle, Huntington Beach and Portland with job transfers over the past ten years. In 08' the medical industry went belly up, so I went back to school. Today I am a full time student in hopes of owning a business that taps into my creative side within the next year or so..

    As a kid I was always drawing and dreaming about the hot rods and cars/trucks that my Dad and family members had. I was also into BMX while we lived in Iowa. When we relocated to Colorado I became a pretty good freestyler, eventually getting sponsored by GT bicycles through a local bike shop. A crazy wreck off of a 10 foot wall when i was a kid took me out of the bmx/freestyle sport. After that I got caught up and had a little too much fun and got in way too much trouble through out my teens. The only good thing I was doing in my teens was building my VW's. I also spent a ton of time helping a good friend build his 65' Impala and another friend build a 63'. The 65' was white with mother of pearl ghost patterns, sitting on 14x7 reversed True Classics. Hahha.. shit we started that build 21 years ago and finished it 18 years ago..

    Most importantly my fiance (Angela) and I met back in 05'. She is my best friend, an amazingly giving person that has taught me a lot about life and love... not sure what she sees in me, but we are happy and hoping to have kids in the near future. Thanks for reading

    Here goes nothin'.

    Born in Torrance, lived in Hawthorne right off the blvd. Moved to Elsinore in 84 and started skating that year. Rode until 97 steady. 3rd degree ankle sprain put me in a cast and it still hurts sometimes. I don't think it healed right. I still skate with my daughter from time to time though. It's too hard not to after that many years. Love to skate a good ditch or bomb a hill.

    Skateboarding led me to punk. My dad played guitar and is a car and bike guy so I didn't stray too far from that. I started playing guitar seriously in about 92 or 93 and played in a few local punk bands with guys I skated with. Had a blast. started writing graffiti in about 95. Co-founded the first piecing/bombing crew out here. Tag-banging and disrespect were ugly then so we tried to take it back. We did. I retired from that around the time I got married. It was fun but not worth getting caught. Basically found myself too old for it.

    Met my wife in school. Started dating in 96, married in 02, daughter in 03. Lived in a project here in elsinore for about 7 years. Met some great people, saw some heavy stuff. Lost a few friends to drugs and shootings. That stuff changed the way I feel about friendship and life quite a bit. Own a house in a quiet neighborhood now. It's a nice change.

    Right out of high school, I spent 4 years at Concepts, the shop that built Las Vegas. They built 3 other Lifestyle cars after that. I was there for 2, but I ain't talking. Before I was 21, I had chopped 7 cars, sectioned 2, 7 sets of suicide doors, basically built some rad shit. Got the itch to open a shop so I left to be a bodyman. Spent a year doing that. Went to the paint side and dug the hell out of it. Spent 6 years doing that eventually being the lead painter at a chevy dealership. Got let go for not taking part in insurance fraud (the manger got fired shortly after. Wonder if it was my letter to the owner..) and shop hopped for a bit. Currently spraying 3 tone sunburst at Fender guitars. Man I miss cars..I'm looking to get back into it. Looking at my current deal as a breather. It's helped me realize how much I love working in the automotive industry. I've also been striping on and off since 98.

    I work in the largest performance shop/retailer/wholesaler in Canada. I am in the wholesale department. So I only have to answer phone calls. I did face to face retail for 13 years. Never again. It made me hate people. I hated people for a long time. But moving into an office made me have faith in humanity again. So it was a good move.

    I was born in Ottawa, Ontario and moved out to here to BC in '75. Been here ever since. I have a house here and live with my GF of 6 years, and her 9 year old son. I have my 4 wagons, all '59's, and a '63 Greenbriar that I bought for my gf. I'll get to it sometime, haha. I also have my '61 Chris Craft Ski Boat, that I love. I wish everyday was a boating day.

    I'm a pretty simple dude. Put me around good people, and I'll be content for life. I've met some of those people on here. And I'm glad for that.

    ♠ Chicago Chapter ♠

    User Info Menu

    Born in Chicago, raised in the burbs by my Mom and if it wasn't for her I'd probably be in jail or dead. Got big into skateboarding and punk at about the of age 11 quickly realized that I wasn't really good enough to make it big so started taking pictures with my moms old camera and found that I was better at that then skating. Never got to big into drugs and alcohol because I was diagnosed with a seizure disorder at age 13 and the meds I got put on didn't mix with alcohol. Witch was probably a good thing considering the crowds I ran with.

    Went college for photography and fell into the Chicago rockabilly scene and started doing photography for a local magazine. Strait out of school I got an internship working as a photo assistant at playboy, sounds like a dream job but it actually was pretty lame, I was mostly working on shots of cigars and watches. Meet some guys who were running an art gallery and they decided to rep me so I started showing my photography there which lead to getting to show my work in galleries all over the US and a few shows in Germany and Ireland, I also have work in a museum collection in Japan and here in Chicago. It all sounds great but I still had a day job at a hardware store and was flat broke.

    I moved to LA for awhile to try and better my art career but it was around 9/11 and nobody really wanted to see staged violent photography. So I did the still movie photography thing for a bit, my then girlfriend of 3 years that I moved there with decided she wanted to leave me for some drummer in a band she meet (such a fuckin cliché) but it was true. I'll be honest I was pretty messed up by it, and my whole support system was back in Chicago. Played around with the idea of moving to SF to go to grad school but didn't really want to take on anymore debt. So I packed my shit and my trusted boston terrier and headed back to Chicago.

    I now work for a program that sets up after school programming in the arts in Chicago public high schools. Got married 3 years ago to a great girl who is also my best friend, had a baby girl 3 months ago and although very tired I couldn't be happier. I still do photography here and there and still have an occasional show. I posted a few of my pictures on the LBCC Board Member Art Show Thread if you want to check'em out. Man, it's kinda crazy to actually right all this shit down.

    Born and raised in York, PA, where Nappy is from . Skate punk as a kid then I went to Penn State and got my BS in Helath and Human Development-empasis in Recreation and Park management. I wanted to be a park ranger, turns out that is tougher than it seems( low paying), I was a social worker for about 4 years working with at risk youth and finally had to stop due to the emotional toll it was taking and I decided to return to school and get my masters in education. All through this time I was an avid bicycle racer on the road and Mt. bikes, aspired to be pro even got sponsored for a bunch of years but life and bills eventually took priority. Moved to AZ in 2002 too teach and have been ever since, i currently teach automotive technology and welding but have previously worked in a high school couseling department and even taught collision repair for a little. I met my wife out here and we have been married for 2.5 years, She is the light of my life along our two beautiful daughters. I continue to skate, bike, paint and spend most of my free time messing with cars, thats sort of me in a nut shell.
