Since most of us are obviously interested in architecture and the subsequent built environment here in greater Houston, I'm curious what everyone does for a living (or if they are retired or students etc.)

Perhaps this has been asked before?  I'm not sure?  Thanks.

^You guys are interesting.  I've always loved looking at landscape architectural work and publications.

Full disclosure I'm just a "reglar" arch_e-tect

Engineer.  Although I am kinda "mad" the poll lumped architects and engineers together.  Not because I would't want to be associated with architects, just wanted to see how many actual architects are on the site.

^Sorry about that.  I should have put engineer in a seperate catagory - as I'll venture a guess that many people who voted "other" are engineers in some other field.  If you can't find an engineer in this town you aren't in this town... it would seem.

Data warehouse developer.  Usually just say "developer" but i've found that non-info tech people get the wrong impression so i have to spell it out.

Don't worry, I know what you mean as I do some of that myself. I usually say developer as well.

Software developer. Salesman.

 

Edit: Some of my clients being a salesman happen to be architects.

Commercial construction and real estate lawyer (mostly on the war horse side, some transactional).

 

FWIW, my dad was an engineer - civil by education, structural by practice, long before the practice got as segmented as it is now.  He would have been annoyed to be put in the same category as architects.

I am very retired and enjoying it albeit I am still pretty busy. I serve on the planning and zoning commission and am active in the chamber and on a couple of other committees
 around town. I am also active in my church.

Wow, I can't believe that Commercial Broker didn't make the list (I personally feel that it falls out of the two categories in REA listed ARCH/CON)  For now that is what I do, and I am beginning to dabble in the development of Retail Power Centers..

I am VERY late to this....I work for my church.  My husband is an engineer and my children are engineering majors (Civll and Mechanical).  When I was at UT I took an architecture class and fell in love. My daughter had the same professor and had the same experience :-).
