Hi Eldon ... I think Tech chose me. My degree was as a Social Worker and I ended up becoming a secretary in a printer manufacturing company. I was very curious about how the printers worked and spent a lot of time in the tech support department watching people fix them. As I moved forward in my career, I continued to learn more and more about computers and software. In conjunction with my people skills and my desire to help people, I eventually moved into tech support. The bottom line, for me anyway, it that is was something I was, and am still, interested in. I never intended to work in High Tech. I am fascinated by the constant change and growth of technology. Never a dull moment!
