About Stone Lasley

I'm the software development manager at Blendtec, and I am a big computer geek, both figuratively and literally. I competed as a bodybuilder for 10 years, winning state titles on two occasions. Bodybuilding taught me more about discipline and living with discomfort than anything else I've ever done. Aside from bodybuilding, I've competed in freestyle (moguls) skiing, motorcycle road racing, and computer programming. Although I enjoy competing, most of my time is taken by learning a new computer languages, spending time with my wife and two dogs, or working on one of my aquariums.
