Danny Chu

Founder, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), and President of Digipixart, Inc

Danny has over 20 years of experience in the area of biometrics technology and Information Technology (IT) systems. Danny is a graduate of Virginia Military Institute with a B.S. in Physics. He has extensive hands-on experience in the full lifecycle of systems development. One of Danny’s most notable success stories is the founding of LEX Solutions (LEX) in June of 1996. LEX’s business focus involved IT solutions that utilized biometrics and smart cards. The company provided system integration and development services to the Federal Government and commercial businesses. LEX was one of the fastest growing IT businesses in Washington DC area and was acquired in 1999.

Subsequent to the sale and acquisition of LEX, Danny took a two year sabbatical to travel across the U.S. and throughout different parts of the world. During his two year adventure, Danny had two companions by his side: his future wife; and his newly-acquired digital camera (a Canon 1D). While he was traveling and taking photos of his journeys abroad, Danny had a vision: he had a unique combination of his skills that he could leverage to start another business adventure. Specifically, his background in physics, digital imaging, IT system design/implementation, and business development — combined with his newly-acquired photography skills — formed the foundation for a digital photography business. With that concept in mind, Danny started Digipixart in 2003, at a time when digital cameras were rapidly changing the landscape of the photography industry.

Driven by the belief that the best way to develop solutions for your customers is to become a user of your products, Danny became a professional photographer. He has photographed weddings, business events, and family portraits for over 5 years. He combined his photography experience and IT skills to create the Digipixart business-to-business (B2B) online photo store. The store is used by professional photographers, as well as any organization that has an interest to display digital images to generate revenue (e.g., colleges and universities). Danny’s hands-on photography experience provides the critical insight and knowledge that fuels the creative genius behind the online photo store.
