I'm Luke, the co-founder and CxO of iFixit. What's CxO? Well long after I chose that title it's now become "Chief Experience Officer." However, the true answer is that it's a made-up title I thought was cool. The idea is that "x" was a variable and you could insert whatever letter was relevant to the task at hand. Sometimes I'd be filling the role of COO, other times CFO, and sometimes CEO. So now you know!

My first laptop was a PowerBook 540c "Blackbird." Almost, but not quite, like an SR-71 "Blackbird". One night my PowerBook's hinge suffered a premature death, which served to be the first of many, many, many laptops I'd take apart. I think the PowerBook G3 Pismo is still my favorite laptop of all time.

I went to Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and majored in Industrial Engineering.

When I'm not working at iFixit or fixing things I enjoy flying and playing the clarinet (although generally not at the same time). I'm a member of the San Luis Obispo Wind Orchestra. Here's SLO Winds performing Elsa's Procession to the Cathedral and Russian Easter Overture.
