I was big into Star Trek gaming in the old online services (HEAT.net etc) and was involved in "fleets". I started by creating websites for the ones I was in, including forms for signing up, with Perl CGI-BIN handlers etc.

Took BASIC/Visual BASIC, and then C++ in high school in lieu of math classes during sophomore and junior years.

Decided to go to Drexel for Computer Science and graduated there with a BS in CS. Mostly have been doing web application development (backend and frontend) with some sysop stuff (Chef, Docker, etc).
