“I used to call myself a ‘professional tinkerer’. I always had a knack for fixing any broken piece of technology I found, and eventually in my freshman year of high school, I tinkered enough to build my own computer from the ground up. My peers may have thought what I was doing was strange, but I was too interested to care.”
