Growing up as a kid I knew I wanted to be a designer. I used lincoln logs to create intricate skyscrapers. I innovated my own line of sailboats. I even started my own company. For me it was never about playing the game, but designing the map.
I was so immersed in coming up with something new, I could barely contain myself. As a teenager, I discovered computer programming. It fused the creative side of design with the mathematical precision necessary for coding, and I loved it.
