Distributed 24/7, applications, IDEs, language runtimes, multimedia, real-time. Architect/Design, Manage (including CTO). Startups to big companies (e.g. Apple Computer). When I get into too many meetings I go home and write some code to relax. Software animal. If it involves software development I have probably done it. I prefer Agile/eXtreme Programming projects.
