I started my working life as an apprentice mechanic toiling away in a grubby workshop for hours to earn a pittance, I knew there was more for me out there but didn’t know what. One day I handed in my notice and declared to my boss “I‘m going to work with computers!” I was 19, this was in 1994 and we didn’t even own a computer!
