Tech & Innovation Director at TBWA\Digital Arts Network Sydney

Ben X Tan is a futurist, software engineer and occasional artist/musician. He started drawing and playing piano from a young age, and was introduced to programming when he was 11. Unhappy with being constantly forced to play classical music written centuries ago, he decided he wanted to be a creative person and make and invent new things. Fast forward to the future, and he has worked in the software industry for over 11 years and has had experience with a wide range of technologies. These days he works on innovative and creative tech solutions, and constantly has his finger on the pulse of all things digital.
