Lorenzo has been with Pixio since the beginning. He has been coding since he was 12 years old as an intern at a software company. Though he does not relate to Veterinarians, his super power is in connecting with people because he’s done a little bit of everything so there’s always a way to relate. Lorenzo is a graduate from the University of Utah and spends his time with Pixio determining the direction of the company, making decisions, thinking and finding the best people—people who have a talent and people who need that talent. The thing Lorenzo can’t live without? Tension.

Matt has been with Pixio since the beginning and been coding for 20 years. The University of Utah alum has a super power of being able to see an entire system’s code architecture before it even exists. He also has a flyer jet suit.

Though sometimes he gets snatched out of the air by tendrils of administrative work. The thing Matt can’t live without? Air, his wife and a side of fries.
