I'm a born techy.. I took apart my toys as a kid to see how they worked on the inside, thus, fascination ensued. That sparked a wanted knowledge of all things computerized.
Then I took an elective computer class in the 8th grade (late 80s) and that's all she wrote. I've been hooked ever since. Through formal education and freelance projects I have become quite versed in making things run at their most efficient.
