Two childhood stories explain how UX became my chosen field.

In the second grade, I got a behavior citation after I changed the theme on one of the classroom’s iMacs. I was subsequently banned from the computers for a week.

In the sixth grade, I jailbroke and reskinned my dad’s iPod — the clickwheel type. He got angry, but then I restored it and then everything was okay again.

I may have been seen as a bit of a troublemaker, but disruption cannot occur without change.
