I have always been fascinated by data, how to access this stored information and communicate it to create knowledge.
When I was young, I read encyclopedia articles to fall asleep, trivial pursuit cards while in the toilet and got quick information from teletext... later the internet opened a whole new information source.
This probably motivated my early interest in programming which I later applied to biology, a science that was slowly becoming a huge generator of new data.
I ended up in global healthcare research and management in the diagnostic, pharmaceutical, and academic industries, having worked in the USA, Switzerland, Germany, and Peru.
