JACKSONVIILE, Fla. – A Silicon Valley icon was in Jacksonville to help inspire University of North Florida students Tuesday night.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has really shaped the computing industry since he and Steve Jobs founded Apple in the 70s.

"I never thought I'd have a job designing computers. I thought they were in weird places like research. So that's why I really enjoy talking to students. Boy, if you try to get good at something when you're young, maybe that turns out to be the valuable thing," said Steve Wozniak.

Wozniak has since left Apple and now is involved in various business and philanthropic ventures. He is primarily focused on getting computers in every school.

He was in town Tuesday evening as part of UNF’s Presidential Lecture Series.
