(PLUG) Looking for Math Work

Dear Provo Linux Users Group,
For several months I have been working as a web developer, a research assistant, and a software engineer. My goal has been to do these things part-time, and then work on mathematics in my spare time. So far, though, I have run into two problems: I do not make enough money yet to do this; and, I do not have the time to work on mathematics. I have decided that I need to pursue mathematical work!
I am especially attracted to pure mathematics, and especially math with a geometric component. Among my interests, I would expect the following to be most applicable to mathematical work:
-- linear algebra, matrices, vectors
-- quaternions, and dual quaternions
-- algebraic topology
-- polygon approximation
-- finite element analysis
I have also considered several industries that would potentially use these skills:
-- computer graphics
-- computer games
-- engineering firms
-- architecture firms
-- financial analysis (or so I've heard)
In looking for mathematical work, I have several questions I would propose to PLUG. First, any ideas of what kinds of work I could look for? Second, are there any other industries I should look into? Third, are there specific companies I should look into in Utah Valley? (I'll give bonus points for people I can contact in those companies, unless they are in Human Resources. :-)
Recently I've started to learn Haskell and Lisp. These languages are highly mathematical in nature, so I would almost consider software development using these languages as mathematical work!
Thanks for answering my questions!
Sincerely,
Alpheus Madsen.
