While in college, he was diagnosed with Chrohn’s disease. He struggled to find other individuals with the same disease for support in coping with the challenges of living with his disability. Also, through personal experience, he learned the difficulties disabled individuals face in securing viable employment. 

Lixon became increasingly frustrated with the amount of time it took him to find the necessary resources to assist him with his path to a normal productive life. He discovered that technology could be the catalyst to provide for himself and others a way to connect to a plethora of resources for their own disabilities. 

This led him to found a non-profit organization, the Alliance Community and Employment Services, Inc. (ACES). 
ACES assists countless disabled jobseekers to secure employment in South Florida. 

Lixon believes that an individual is not defined by their medical condition or disability, and that anyone can achieve their goals as long as they have the correct support system in place.
