I'm a Janitor as a day job. Easy stuff... light work, decent pay, and I'm my own boss. I'm allowed to take as many breaks as I want and for as long as I want as long as my work is done. So I'll stick with it for now. I can't see myself having this as a career forever.

I also do freelance web development on the side for extra cash. Didn't go to school for that... was self taught. As for education, only High School.

I'm thinking of taking a vacational course but not sure what I'm interested in... but that'll come later. I'll think some more about that as soon as I have my car loan paid off.

I'm a costodian at McDonalds restaurant.

Sometimes, I also get to work the deep fryer and make fries and etc.

I used to be a cashier most of the time, but that was too much stress for me, I had a huge panic attack once and promised myself, never again.

My status is real on last page.

But also as a Comedian I can't believe nobody in Montreal has said this yet!

University prof. I teach computer simulation and do research in medical simulation and surgical navigation, especially for neurosurgery.

I also have an interest in using simulation for device development, in a wide sense, which could over time include improved preventative measures against concussions, especially since the NHL is doing nothing.

Australia rocks. I've been to Perth, to interact with a UWA lab, and Brisbane, for an interview at UQ.

Edit: freakin' long flight btw, especially from Montreal, which is literally the other end of the world. I think that you can do it in two legs if you go through LA.

Last: you have to be an optimist and a fighter to be a postdoc, since essentially you're doing this for a faculty position ultimately. Achieving that is partly about expertise (and publications), but also partly about moral qualities and strength of character, in the face of what can turn out to be a lot of negative responses from universities.
