About Ben LaGrone

Benjamin LaGrone is a Web Developer who lives and works in Texas. He got his start programming when he was 6 when he took his first computer class at The Houston Museum of Natural Science. His first program was a Choose your own adventure book written in BASIC, and he has fond memories of the days when software needed you to write line numbers.

Fast forward about thirty years, after deciding that these computers are here to stay, Ben has made a career combining favorite things, creating art and coding, making art from code. One of his favorite projects was using the GMaps API to map pathologies to chromosome for cancer research.

Having for a long time loved mobile devices, Ben thinks that the Responsive Web is one of the most exciting, yet long time coming, new aspects of web development. He now works on various projects focused around mobile and responsive technology and Web APIs.

When he's not working on some internet project, Ben spends some time building robots, tinkering with machines, drinking coffee, surfing, and teaching Kuk Sool martial arts.

None of this would be possible without the support of his loving wife, Hannah, and two beautiful daughters, Daphne and Darby.
