Started working on computers for fun in the early 80's, gave me something to do in my spare time. Entered military service in late '87 because I wanted to travel. Travel I did quite often. I made the mistake and mentioned to my commander that I knew a little about computers and off I went with my computer career.
I very quickly got registered for Vocational Rehabilitation, school. Started out going for my Associates Degree in Computer Science but being 39 yrs old and going back to college really wasn't my cup of tea. I also didn't care for the programming aspect of computers. So I chose a different route and went to trade school for MCSA, MCSE, CCNA, CNA, A+, and Network + certifications.
