Our founder, David is the lead engineer/inventor, he is the pulse of The Coldest Water that keeps us going. He is the definition of a workaholic, usually working nineteen hour days, if not all day. He just loves seeing the company expand and finding new improvements to everything. He enjoys challenges and figuring out how to make things work as affectively as possible. If he isn’t in the laboratory though, you can catch him zooming on this electric longboard or lounging with his sidekicks: Keywei, Nala, Dobei, and Simba. On his free time, he also loves playing soccer, listening to podcasts, and working on Classified Projects.
