The idea that I can create anything I can imagine and see real tangible results always stuck with me. As I grew older I realized, it had the power to reach, help and change so much, but I always think back to those days when I played endless hours on Roller Coaster Tycoon, and countless other strategy games, dreaming up of ways to make my own.

I've also always thought of it like art, or sometimes like architecture, or even pottery. Moulding something with my own two hands, on what is essentially controlled flow & storage of electricity. It's truly, truly mind-blowing if you think about, just every keystroke you're making and how that translates to everything in tech.
