David Drake has gained valuable experience through his extensive work history. He acquired knowledge regarding sales force management, pricing strategies, product positioning, inventory control, and market research through his work with a novelty concession business catering to the state and county fair markets. While working at McDonnell Douglas, David became fascinated with manufacturing and the related human resources requirements. His involvement assembling critical flight hardware provided him with experiences in strategic business planning, just-in-time manufacturing, and inventory control. The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Worker's Union prospected him to volunteer time for union negotiations regarding labor contracts, human resource management, and public relations. In May 1996, David graduated as a Dean's Scholar from the University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business Administration with an emphasis in marketing.

Throughout David's study of business principals he intertwined his student projects around a product he called The Bed Desk. He invented his product after rupturing 2 discs in his back so that he could keep up with the demands of an 80 hour scholastic work week where his goal was to gain formal knowledge to create his products. While nearing graduation David began to form his company around his flagship invention. Upon the introduction of his product at the 1996 California Book Fair it became "The Grand Prize." David has been continually winning awards while conceptualizing and designing products both awake and asleep as a child and adult and has now entered "the hunt" as a product developer, manufacturer (although his products are all hand-made in the USA), and marketer. David's dream is to "Build Visions Beyond Boundaries" and create his products as affordable, high-quality gifts to share with the world.
