I didn't get my first computer until I was 12 (1997), but within a year I was messing around in Pascal in a free version Borland Delphi I got off a PC Pro promotional disc.

But very soon after Half-Life was released and then all I wanted was to be a level designer, so I spent the next 8 years learning various 3D and graphics applications. Once I hit about 20 years old I realised I could make better tools, so I downloaded Eclipse and started to learn Python, and then C++. It wasn't long before I forgot all about making content, and focussed all my efforts on programming. Never looked back.

I trained and worked in the VFX industry, but now work in pro-audio.
