I've loved software for a very long time.

When my dad brought home a 286 in 1991, I was enthralled. I watched as he painstakingly typed and simultaneously repeated cd backslash games enter and saw the screen scroll and change. It was mind-blowing to a ten year old.

A couple years later, a middle school math teacher gave me a book on BASIC programming, and said she had noticed I liked computers. At home, I discovered that our new 486DX computer had QBasic. I was in heaven.

That has led to a life-long obsession with coding. The journey has taken me from running large excavation equipment to framing houses to 3D CAD design, until I eventually landed on a career in software.
