    I am a hobby laserist working to become a pro laserist... with very little artistic talent and no musical talent.

    I can probably slide in as "I am a hobby laserist and a business man", but I am hoping that it will be "I am a pro laserist and a business man" soon.
    Love, peace, and grease,

    Missing option cowboy Neal!

    Laser (the acronym derived from Light Amplification by Stimulated Emissions of Radiation) is a spectacular manifestation of this process. It is a source which emits a kind of light of unrivaled purity and intensity not found in any of the previously known sources of radiation. - Lasers & Non-Linear Optics, B.B. Laud.

    I'm not that much of a bussiness man yet, but certainly trying to work my way up to that level.
    I do consider myself an artist, not a musician or anything on that level.
    I love lasers and that's all that I care about.
    I'm not sure if I am the one to judge if i'm pro or not or on the level of just being hobby, so I picked both because I'm in between?
    Or am I indeed pro?
    *not with beamshows that is certainly and my hardware skills are limited, I'm doing my best to advance and I certainly want that!*

    I wouldn't be interested in any of this if I couldn't build my own projector and write my own software. It's purely an engineering hobby for me with some artistic and monetary relief.

    Your Poll options are not very specific.

    "I am a hobby laserist and an artist"

    I assumed this also covered BS artists.

    I'm a little surprised. At this point in the responses, none of you are either hobby/professional laserists and DJ's. I thought there were more DJ's in our midst.

    I'm surprised there is no answer like just "I'm a laserist because I love technical things and I'm interested in anything like high voltage, power, physics, and the like"

    I had to choose between DJ and musician in the poll, so I chose musician as I'm doing that more now than DJing, but that's how I got into producing music...

    Thank you all for participating in my lil' survey
    Well, there were only 10 categories allowed, so .. yeah, in hindsight I coulda done better on this but .. too late now (no editing allowed on the poll OP ) Anyway, it's interesting to see who's into what . I wish I could have added a few more; e.g.: "race car driver", "technical engineer" etc.
    FWIW, as far a I know, an artist is a person that creates works of art whether it's light-based or canvas and oils. I hope that most here are astute enough to be able to differentiate between an actual creator and a "b.s. 'artist'". lol.
    -edit-
    I had to choose between DJ and musician
    I should have mentioned this before; it's "multiple-choice" meaning that you can select more than 1. (I didn't test that though, so I'm not 100% sure that works.)
