Our Team

Introduction

The concept of ModernBlox started in 2012 with Ben Loh and other Oklahoma State University (OSU) students.
Three years after the design has been created, most of his team members had already graduated and moved on. Ben still wanted to continue with the project because of his passion for building things, modern architecture, and knowing that it could help a lot of Oklahomans. He got new team members including Lee Easton, and Swapneel Deshpande.
Chad Magruder joined the team later on August of 2016.
