How did you get into tech?

As a youngster, one of my hobbies was doing algebra word problems as riddles. Growing to love math and having the passion to apply it in real-life applications, it didn't cross my mind to be doing anything else but engineering. I have always been fascinated by computer science and especially its life applications to build interactive products.
