I was about 10 or 11 when I was learning HTML and CSS to build my Neopet a Petpage. After that I branched off into Javascript and set up a page on Geocities, and moving over to game programming with a book called Game Programming for TEENS when I was 12. Because I'm a rebel at heart.

After that I taught myself some flash scripting, took a CS course sophomore year of college in Java, leading to AP CS. Went to college for CS (and then switched to the new game dev major). Got a job making branded Flash/Unity games, and then making CMS-backed websites.
