Born in the Philippines, I was the only (lonely) child. A direct contrast to my seventeen aunts and uncles and each of their respective clans. Displaced at the tender age of three, my family re-established themselves in Los Angeles, California.
Having been the only child, I of course suffered the same fate as many others in my position – I became the classic overachiever. My school years were memorable – half of it spent in private school (Catholic) and the other half spent in public school, in that order. Even military school once (another story). I did all of the typical things normal kids did at that time: tree houses, camp outs, skateboarding, boy scouts, sports, etc…
Everything changed in high school… I discovered the TRS80 (trash 80) and the Apple II. Well… one thing led to another, and I ended up knee deep in Information Technology (IT).
