Name: Nathan Day
Title: LugBug Inventor or car seat ergonomic extraordinaire
City you live in: Gilbert
I was born… in a hospital on a clear evening late at night I’m told.
My favorite thing about Arizona… is the proximity to mountains and all that our state has to offer. Have you heard of the Grand Falls? Neither had I, it’s a must see in our state!
I am currently listening to… a rotation of Pandora.
My family… is who gave me the idea of LugBug™ after I dislocated my shoulder while lugging around my infant daughter in her car seat.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… with my wife with NO kids.
One thing I cannot live without… tooth brush
When I was younger, I wanted to be… Superman, looking at all my childhood photos I am always wearing a Superman cape and cowboy boots.
I am inspired by… the many individuals before me who have paved the way.
The one person who motivates me is… my daughters Lola, Thalia, and Lucía. The dreams they have keep me motivated on tough days and easy days.
My first job was… cleaning offices.
My favorite escape… is getting out of the city. Everything is slower when you’re out in the open and enjoying the outdoors.
My life… I never thought I would launch a top baby product.
I am currently working on… LugBug™, a lightweight, ergonomic and exceptionally strong little handle that adjusts to any single-handle baby carrier. It offers a range of better, more comfortable and enjoyable carrying positions that ease tension on the wrist, forearm and shoulder.
Always…try new things and test ideas. Don’t let them stay ideas
Never… say, “I had that idea, I wish I had done something with it.”
Favorite Quote… “You don’t need planning permission to build castles in the sky” -Banksy
Biggest Dream… currently… getting all my kids out of diapers would be pretty amazing.
My Pet Peeve(s)… is people who pass gas on an airplane, come on we all have experienced this and it annoys us all. I mean we are in an aluminum can with wings hold it for your fellow American at all costs, HOLD IT.
