#FatherDay2023: Dear Dad, Thanks for Unexpectedly Directing Me Towards a Career In Technology


My father passed away more than a year ago.

Though we weren’t close, my dad inadvertently inspired a technology-laden path that would traverse the course of my life.

So on this #FathersDay2023, I'm reflecting on how my dad influenced my interest in computers and software — a spark he never knew he'd ignited.

Happy father’s day to him and to all dads, far and wide.
