I started on anime back in high school (03-04ish) with FLCL, Hand Maid May, and Onegai Teacher. Soon I watched one of my favorite animes: Mai Hime! It is still up there (although Please Teacher is now a running joke because my wife and I hate it so much). One of my anime senpais (an underclassmen of mine ironically) would host anime marathons and indoctrinated me into many classic anime, like Chobits, Escaflowne, Love Hina, etc. In college I went on to take over my school's anime club beginning in my freshmen year and kept it running (under the school's radar) for all of my four years there. I made sure to subject them to many must sees: Gurren Lagann, Mai HiME (at least for me it is), Fate Stay/Night, and some others. Of course I also encouraged votes and we watched a fair number of anime that were new to me as well. Now in the working world, I haven't been watching anime as much as I used to but when I decide to watch something, the rest of my activities fall to the wayside ;P. Who the hell do you think I am!?
