To me, programming isn't a job, but a thrill. I love solving the puzzles, learning the ropes, and experiencing that satisfying feeling when I make some great accomplishment, all while enriching others' lives through my work. I love to bend a computer to my will, getting it to work for me to advance the things I want to do.
I've always been interested in computers since I was a kid, learning how to create web pages with my middle-school friends in the earlier days of the internet, and writing my first program on a TI-83 calculator. As I investigated more technologies and got more experience in the workplace and on my own, I knew that I had found something I truly enjoyed doing. I've really learned to love the creative aspect of constructing a program, especially in a work environment where programmers are cared for and valued.
