When did you know that you wanted to be a developer?
"I spent a year working with a team of developers as an intermediary between the engineering team and the users. After a time, I didn't want to have to ask the engineers for everything so I started making small edits to the code base myself. An engineer saw what I was doing and helped me write my first hello world in Cold Fusion. I quickly moved to Ruby after that and have been hooked ever since."
