Luke paired his scanning hobby with his eCommerce experience to start Zip Scanners in 2013. When he’s not running Zip Scanners, he likes to travel (42 countries visited) & runs (has delusions of running a half marathon).

Favorite Scanner: SDS100. Has 4 total. One for his truck, home, office & cabin. Miiight be overdoing the "market research."

Franky, a good boy, is our warehouse guard dog when he's not too busy being adorable. He's a master of greeting all visitors (or anyone that walks by) with max excitement. Almost a year old, his days are spent napping & playing fetch with our team when they need a break.
