At one time or another I have been, among other things, a bank clerk, factory worker, psychotherapist, professional poker player, legislator, magic shop proprietor, author, and psychology professor.

I am now in rehearsal for my next position. I have to learn to say, "Welcome to WalMart," with just the right inflection.

Do you know Yak Williams? If you do, tell him that Benjamin and Ryan say hi. My kids know Yak from Bill Pitts' Cavalcade of Magic.

My day job is working in a bindery. If you live in the US or Canada there's a fair chance that some phone books, college catalogs or schedules, or game & fish rules and regs from your area were worked on by yours truly. On a busy day, with all the machines running, we crank out in the neighborhood of four or five hundred thousand books a day. Needless to say, we aren't popular with the spotted owl.

For over 32 years I worked as a pressman in a printing company.
The company closed after failure to keep up with the times and a family dispute.
I also did web and graphic design on the side and still do.

For the past couple of years I've been working for a retail chain filling orders and coordinating deliveries among other things.

Great post! It is fasinating to see the various backgrounds in this diverse field of Magic!

I have been in Sales for 20 years in the field of Telecomunications and Data Networks. I have also been a residential real estate investor (for retirement some day...) I enjoy selling my magical services as entertainment and motivation. I also enjoy selling the entertainment services of many of the local magicians in the Atlanta area.

In our local club we have in addition to a dozen full time performers, medical doctors, mortician, lawyers and a judge, ministers, financial planer, real estate agents, steel designers, math professors, students, pilots, TV producer, weather man... Wow! What wonderful diversity that magic has drawn together...

I WAS a typesetter/graphic artist. Currently I work as a sales clerk at Wal-Mart! This is going to impact my busking (if and when I ever get up the nerve to do it) as I have different days off each week and never Saturday or Sunday!

Jaz - Although the sigs and covers are already printed by the time I do my job, it was cool to see you used to run a press. What kind of stuff did your company do?
