Do you remember when technology blew your mind for the first time ever and kickstarted your tech ambition? For me it was the iPod Nano, I remember seeing the ad and being hooked on tech and especially music tech ever since.

I was part of the Nintendo 64 fever! Generally speaking, videogames have encouraged a lot my love for tech and visual development.

Growing up, we didn't have a computer at home. One weekend dad took me to his office when they got one for work. Played a game which I think was called Bricks. Got hooked.
