What initially sparked your interest in technology?

When I was young we had many game consoles: NES, SNES, several GameBoys, N64, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, XBox, and on. My parents bought the family nearly all the systems except for a GameCube and Sega Saturn, I guess we didn’t ask for those ones. Needless to say, we were not outdoor kids. Along with the consoles, we had a Commodore 64 that we would play games on. Eventually the Commodore was upgraded into Windows95, Windows98, WindowsME, and Vista.

I was always fascinated with playing games and by what you could do with computers and that led me into wanting to build software and taking programming classes in high school.
