How many times has someone asked you what your degree is in and when you respond, Math, they ask, Oh, do you teach? While teaching is a noble profession, it is not for everyone.

I will describe career options that I stumbled upon while job searching during the last phases as a graduate student in applied mathematics, the path I chose, and a brief sampling of some of the research in which I am currently involved.
