I am passionate about technology. Ever since I was little, when my parents bought me my first computer, I was hooked on anything related to computers. I started reading magazines and blogs to keep me up-to-date on anything new.
I always liked learning by myself, and solving different problems on my own. This is mainly how I learned how to write code. I liked to challenge myself with different mini projects (not necessarily related to computer science), because this is how I learned new things.
My first real world big project was in high school, when I was approached by a french real estate developer who wanted to build the biggest ski resort in the country and wanted a 3D model of the resort for his pre-feasibility project. He found me through Google Earth, on which I have a number of buildings modeled by me.
But my first project relating to software developer was during my 3rd year in college when I was asked to develop a CRM for a small advertising agency. It was my first contact with web-development, and from than on I was hooked on everything regarding WEB technologies.
