National Sports Challenge was my first paid client job. I was 19 years old and I was paid about $250 to build it. NSC was a Madden 2000 tournament, E-sports way ahead of its time. Not only did I build the website, but I helped the guy running it to set up 64 40-inch CRT TVs and Playstations in a hotel conference room. Despite widespread radio ads, turout was much lower than expected. But to just have someone pay me to build a website was exciting.
