Q: What inspired you to become an engineer? Were you always interested in technology? If so, why? If not, when did you become interested and why?

A: I haven’t always been interested in technology — my real passion, even as a child, has always been mathematics. One of my earliest memories is actually being interested in math in elementary school.

I haven’t always been interested in technology, although I do remember watching 2001: A Space Odyssey as a child. It made a lasting impression on me — it made me want to be an astronaut.
