- 1. What is your very favourite childhood memory, and what makes it so special to you?
- Sitting on the porch with my dad, watching a thunderstorm. We’d huddle under this particular blanket and just be close. He’d drink a maté and we’d listen to the thunder, smell the rain, and smell the drink.
2. What got you into coding/programming?
- Having it be there, always in my life — it’s always been something to focus on, something intriguing and artistic and creative. And the sound of the keys on the TI99/4a was particularly pleasant.
- 3. What was the best trip you’ve ever gone on?
- In 1998, I went to England with the theater group. We did improv shows in two schools, a performance of Antigone, and I ran the lights for the adult’s show. We toured Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Bath, Avebury and Salsbury. I learned more about myself on that trip than I can possibly describe, and enjoyed it very, very much.
- 4. What skill of yours are you most proud of?
- The ability to see what people are really feeling despite both attempts to hide it and practiced façades.
- 5. What was your first word as a baby?
- The ever boring “mama”. I’ll have to ask what I said next — I don’t know.
