How Did You Get There?

This is a post to tell people how you got to the stage you are at with design/coding and other such talents we have on the forums.

For example schooling and qualifications, books, teachers, inspiration. Whatever made you better and got you to the stage you are at.

My dad was into photography and editing them on a computer. Thats how i started out on my journey. I studied Media Production at college and got a diploma in that. Took two years out doing freelance work and teaching myself using the internet (kirupa). I am currently at Uni studying Interactive Multimedia. I own two books one on AS and one on CSS.

Pretty dull thread but may help youngsters be inspired to do what they want to later in life.
