Levi Hentges started programming in high school and continued through his college career.
After college he changed gears and went into the manufacturing industry to concentrate on
project management. In 2006 he relocated to the Minneapolis area and joined an international
trading company as a sales manager for a product line of power sports parts and accessories.
Levi's main focus was to improve customer service levels on all of its facets; product quality,
delivery times, brand image and just making it more convenient for customers to work with their
supplier. In 2009 he was approached by his longtime friend Chris McMacken to join up with Ross

Chris' interest in computers began on an Apple IIe in the early 90s, when he began playing text
adventures on the family computer. In high school he took several programming courses, and from
there decided to attend South Dakota State University where he studied various programming
languages including C++ and Java. Chris graduated from SDSU in the spring of 2008 with a BS in
Computer Science. Shortly after graduation Chris moved to Minneapolis, MN and began writing web
Ross started writing software in QBASIC on his family's computer in 1997, teaching himself by
reading tutorials and sample code that he found online. By the time he graduated high school, he
had dabbled in a number of programming languages, both desktop and web. After graduating with a BS
in Computer Science from South Dakota State University, Ross moved to Lincoln, NE, to pursue a
Master's degree in Computer Science from the University of Nebraska—Lincoln, focusing on
virtualization. When not working on his thesis or Blue Worm Labs projects, he spends most of his
time working on photography.
