When he was 5, his grand-mother took him to an exhibition about automatons. From there he knew he wouldn't grow up to become a firefighter but work with machines instead. He then spent his teenage years in his bedroom coding with QBasic on DOS. He is mostly self-taught, self-learner, self-starter, with a passion for exploration and science in general.
