Taught myself BASIC in the third grade, built my first website in 6th grade. First large network (more than 50 nodes) in 8th grade. Used Pagemaker, Indesign, Photoshop, Flash, and Dreamweaver extensively in high school.
After HS, I started my career with technologies mostly by helping the local teachers that I had helped in high school. It expanded from there into our very comprehensive web design strategy in which we make the web site exactly how the company wants it, including custom sounds, custom back end programming, and front end graphics. We have even had people request our own CMS software.
