Sam Bousfield, Founder and Inventor

A fourth generation native of Nevada City, California, Mr. Bousfield earned a Bachelor of Science with Dean’s Honors from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo in 1979. Post-graduate studies included marketing and business management. Due to an interest in aviation, Mr. Bousfield became involved with a core group of Boeing engineers who utilized his conceptual ideas to advance aeronautical research. This relationship developed into several international scientific papers presented to the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and the Swedish government utilized one of the resultant designs to re-calibrate their wind tunnel through Mach 1.

His interest in helping others led Mr. Bousfield to become a proud supporter and volunteer in a number of community programs including Boy Scouts of America and The Way To Happiness Foundation. A Boy Scout leader for ten years, Mr. Bousfield feels that that has helped him as much as he has helped others.

Sam Bousfield loves what he does, and spends most of his waking hours working on concepts that can forward the company, push the boundaries of technology, and help mankind live richer lives while reducing our impact on the planet we live on.
