Visionary Designer -
Chris is one of those people that we all know that can
shut his eyes put his brain into motion and come up with a great idea or product. This was discovered when he was in the 6th grade at Woodward Academy located in College Park, Georgia.
He participated in an invention show in which he created a rolling book bag on wheels. Fast forwarding 6 years later; he came up with 6 different ideas that he later patented beginning with the first one “Football Helmet Shaped Cooler-Carrier on May 23, 2006; all targeted to crazed sports fans described as tailgaters. This design took countless hours and a lot of research to find the right manufacturer to produce a one of a kind cooler that is rotomolded, designed to depict any team, business, etc. through personalization. Chris cooler known as the “Jughead Cooler” participated on the TV show American Inventors before there was a Shark Tank and made it to the final round on concept along. Chris is currently working with others to develop new and exciting products designed for sports fanatics and people who truly love sports.
Charles could be described as a Coach who played all
sports as a kid a was good enough to earn a full scholarship in basketball, first to Brunswick Junior College and then to Cleveland State University, Cleveland, Ohio.
