Most of my professional life has been spent in and around gaming.
Freelance Miniature Painter. This is my full-time job as of 2015. I schedule my work about 2 months in advance and always looking for cool new projects. The best thing about doing this is that I finally get to paint all of those minis that I never had time to paint when I had a regular job. The downside? I don't get to keep them.
