- Tell us something about yourself, your background
I am a 40-year veteran and creative asset in ecomm, biometric security, telecomm, entertainment, luxury, fashion and publishing industries. I was priceline.com’s very first creative director leading them to an initial value of $9.8 billion. My award-winning work includes extensive music credits including Jimmy Buffett, Linda Ronstadt, Paul McCartney, Billboard Music Awards and hundreds more.
By trade I am a designer, photographer, writer, director, producer and now, an inventor!
- Tell us about the product you invented with a brief explanation:
I have invented the world’s most forgiving and accurate golf putter, the CenterStrike Golf CSG:1. The unique design of this putter has been awarded two patents and conforms to both the USGA (United States Golf Association) and the R&A (Royal & Ancient) Rules of Golf – allowing for professional, tournament play around the globe.
Its rounded face provides a “sweet spot” throughout the club face assuring a true roll when struck.
- How/Why did you start inventing. What set you off?
Golf is hard. Putting is half of your game, so as a new golfer (and designer), I wanted to explore the challenges of hitting a round ball with a flat face. Every putter in the world was flat faced and, as it turns out, that was the inherent problem with confidence and accuracy. Until now.
- How did you get from idea to finished product?
After a frustrating round of golf, I was sitting at my desk and staring at Newton’s Cradle. Observing one ball striking the next at the its center. It inspired me to explore the possibilities of creating and repeating that movement through design and the process of ideation, creation, modeling, protecting, testing and production rolled out soon thereafter.
- Let us know of useful resources that helped you i.e. Books, websites, software etc
I would describe my resources as nearly 100% analog. Except for the modeling which occurs in 3D CAD software and printers, the early design phases were pencil and paper, clay, cobbling disparate parts together and a lot of dialog, loads of conversation about theory and executing these ideas into field testing.
- Where are you with your product? Where can we buy your product?
Our initial beta product sold out almost immediately. The CSG:1/CenterG is currently being produced and available in limited supply by preorder exclusively at our website (Click HERE) starting April 5, 2021.
