Let's see what we got here.... What does everyone do for a living on this forum- What have you built/driven/owned/done in this business? If you're an owner, reply "Owner". If you're a fan, reply "Fan" or "Huge Fan", etc... might just be interesting... (and we can all tell if you're making something up, so don't be mad if you get called on it) This will NOT be a "Let's trash each other" thread, ok?

My name is Chris Foss and i have been around monsters since 1981 when I first saw Bigfoot. At one time I was known up and down the east coast for my photos having sold them to Cal Carrington, Dennis Anderson (a couple of my photos of digger in the mud are in the ushra yearbook this year ), Pat Summa and many more. Then i got married, had a kid, bought a house etc.. Now I work as a manager at Rent A Center. My store is always in the top 250 in profit out of 4000 stores nation wide. I still get to at least 5 shows a year and wish I could make more. My 6 year old has gone with me since he was 3 and now has been to 15 shows and has seen over 75 different trucks! I still sell as many pictures as possible. I now shoot with a sony a100 digital which seems to take wonderful pics. Check out flickr.com and search under people for cfphoto1973 to see some of my work.
Ok I'll bite,
I am the Director of a university's Animal Facility. What that means is I get to "play" with many different types of animals from all over the world. I've done everything from surgeries to diagnosing and treating any injuries, etc. I have my B.S. degree in Psychology and got into grad school for it, but found I really like animals alot more than I do people. Its the perfect job for me. I love animals and treat all "my guys" like they were my own.
As for monster trucks, I am a lifelong fan. I have a great respect to any and all the owners and drivers who give up so much for the people they entertain. I drive an 05' chevy and am currently saving for a "project". I'm not sure what though, mabe a t-bucket kit car or a rockcrawler.
There ya go, my so-called-life in a nutshell.
