My engineering life officially started in a bedroom with a Tascam Porta-05 cassette 4-track, a drum machine, and some guitars… just trying to figure out how to do things, and if I would be any good at it. Years later I found myself leaving my "day job" early several days a week, to be an intern at a "real studio" - which quickly evolved into being a second engineer, and then eventually, fully doing my own projects. It was clear to me early on that this was what I really wanted to do with my life, and I haven't wanted any other kind of work since.
