When did you know that you wanted to work in tech?

As a kid in the 80s, school had computer classes with the apple //e and we had a Commodore 64 at home for games. It was love at first sight. My initial forays into programming were primarily copying pieces from other people’s code - Beagle Bros are still my heroes! I was a member of the Memphis Apple Computer club, meeting at Christian Brothers University, where I was entranced with visions of what the apple ii gs could do with HyperCard. There were many copied games passed around on floppies. Ah those were the days. Then I bailed on programming and spent my college years and early professional years as an architect. When 2008 hit, there was an opportunity to jump back in to tech and I took it.
