    Ha! Well I'm in aerospace soooooo...... you can guess I'd either be a pilot, or mechanic at a rebel base! :)

    @Syeana Tovari Outstanding! @Trevor is in aerospace too, as am I......can I ask a little more detail of you? Pilot or maintenance or engineering? You saw my background from the OP. As a maintainer at heart that is why I geek out at the Yavin-4 hangar scene in ANH....or the Scarif scene in R1

    I'm a mathematician by education, a machinist by trade, and an engineer at heart.

    I'm only happy when I'm building things. I love starting out with raw materials in the morning and ending the day with a work of art. I have a small furniture making business and a day job running a CNC machine that cuts sheets of aluminum into shapes we program into the computer.

    I interned at NASA's Johnson Space Center. Designing and building aerospace components works just as well in the Galaxy far, far away as it does here. Meaning I'd probably design Death Stars to put an end to those Rebel scum once and for all.

    I have a degree in Biology, the main focus being not genetics, but zoology, ethology and animal physiology. But as one has to do something to make a living I switched over to IT at some point of time. ;)

    I’m working as a software product manager for a company that does mainly inspection services in the oil & gas sector all over the world. For 10 years, I was responsible for developing in-house business software along with training, support and documentation, so travelling to the US, Canada, Middle East and elsewhere were common.

    Since close to two years now, I’m part of a small start-up team for developing (modern) software solutions for the market, so we’re also somewhat like a test lab and tinkering shop with VR/AR devices and that robot I posted elsewhere. My current developer team is located in Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon.

    In that galaxy far far away, I would be an innkeeper and owner of a Cantina, always talking to customers from all over the galaxy, listening to the stories of those pilots while serving great meals and drinks.

    I'm graphic designer (specialised in corporate design development and typography), art and design educator and university lecturer (university of applied arts).
    In the SW-universe, I'd design space ships I guess ... (falcon 2)
