Inventions Found Me
I invent products with the Consumer in mind “To Make Life Easier” and innovate tomorrows products today. Many people ask me how I came up with my inventions. There is a story behind each one of them which I’ll share with you below. I have a strong association with my manufacture of 10 years that always deliverers top quality products for me with top class packaging and presentation for my customers. as long as I see a need for the consumer to make their life easier  I will be looking for a way to invent it.
 
THE MOSQUITOFREE TRAP:
In 1998 I contracted Ross River Fever in Noosa Queensland, I then begun to study mosquitoes In October 1999 I purchased the business MossieFree from the original inventor of the product, the unit operated from co2 gas and the high monthly cost for gas at $25.00 and a retail cost of $499.00 was a disadvantage. I then began the redesign the unit; and created an attractant  that replaced the CO2 gas. Over the last 14 years and with technology always being improved such as LED Lighting I have kept improving the trap to what it is today.
 
THE AUSSIE BBQ PLATE:
At a BBQ standing around with a drink in my hand enjoying the hospitality the host asked whether I would like something to eat. I looked around, there was nowhere to sit and eat or to put my drink, that evening I designed the Aussie BBQ Plate,
 
KFS EATING UTENSIL:
While I was at dinner at a restaurant I noticed this guy had his arm amputated at the elbow and how it was so difficult for him to eat with having to pick up a knife to cut and then a fork to eat, so I thought wouldn’t it be great to have a utensil that would assist people with disabilities such as this one along with stroke affected and arthritis stuffers. Once again I woke at 3 am and designed the KFS.
 
TRIPFREE ROPE TENSIONERS
My daughter, Tiffany is an avid camper. She invented glow in the dark tent rope tensioners after experiencing the perils of tripping over tent ropes at night. I thought it was such a great invention I proceeded to get the dies made and move forward with TRIPFREE ROPE TENSIONERS. The Tensioners are now ready for the market world wide.
 
A Little about me
I guess I thank my father for my inventive mind.. he was a builder, always trying to find a shorter and more efficient way to do things, From the start of my business career at the age of 24 in the TV rental business I was always looking for better ways to promote my business with better ideas than my opposition. I guess the downfall of that, when even making good money and I could go no further I got bored and would sell out and move onto the another venture. Which is probably the reason I do so much research on my inventions until I’m happy I have the best design I can do from the start of a project, each invention is like a new business to me. It has taken me 40 years to find my niche in life as I have a great passion in creating products that will make life easier for consumers “oh and make some money too”
