"There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened." - Douglas Adams

Born and raised in Central Illinois, Ben left the prairie for four years to study Computer Science at Tulane University’s School of Engineering in New Orleans. During his studies he realized that the Illinois prairie agreed with him just a bit more than the Louisiana swamps and so he retreated back north upon graduation. Ben joined Pixo in the Fall of 2007 doing development on a Microsoft .NET WinForms application. Since that time he has worked on numerous other projects developing custom Web solutions using ASP and ASP.NET, designing and implementing databases in Microsoft SQL Server, and leading Pixo’s entry into mobile development.

Ben is the chief engineer on Pixo’s automotive (VIN) barcode scanning technology.
