How long have you been working in technology for and what is your technical background?

I’ve been working with technology for 15 years. Growing up, I wanted to be an artist or psychologist and the last thing I wanted to do was work with technology. However, in college I stumbled on computer science and loved the way in which it combined math, art, and psychology in a way that could make real impact in the world.
