Christopher Spence Pratt

With an extremely inquisitive interest and passion for computers from a young age, Christopher started his journey into the world of Technology. What started with playing simple video games on the Commodore 64, Apple II Series, and PC MS-DOS, quickly turned into dismantling devices to interpret how they functioned, to programming QBasic applications.

By 1994, Christopher was running a pre-internet communication service known as a BBS (Bulletin Board System), allowing users to connect via Dial-up and access Message Boards, Files, and multi-user Chat.
