WHY THAT IMAGE?

We made the Big Green Button (center) as an IoT device that wirelessly transmits a signal to take a picture, and upload it automatically to Facebook with the event logo. We use the BGB like a photo booth, and make appearances at tech events and charity galas to build buzz around the event, promote BendyWorks and give back to our community. 2 of our developers, Will and Pearl are pictured with our CEO, Brad, all wearing glasses as we compete in NeXXpo's Most Innovative Company competition, as a tongue-in-cheek way of explaining that our NDAs are so strong we practically have DOD clearance.  In the middle is Israel Lopez, founder of Chins Up, a not-for-profit for whom we have donated hundreds of pro-bono hours over the last 2 years.

What are you most looking forward to in 2017?

Finding our next anchor client.

What was your favorite course in school that has nothing to do with your profession?

Psychology, all my favorite courses apply to what I do though.
