Inventor, Thomas W Fleming
Tom is an accomplished Industrial Designer who has been recognized for Design-Excellence by the Museum of Modern Art. He has over 20 patents to his name, has had his work in the Los Angeles Museum of Art, and has been published in “The Bauhaus, 50 Years After”.
After graduating from Georgia Tech, his early corporate career was in Los Angeles. In 1996 he moved his family to San Diego to develop new products in hearing protection.
Tom always remembered early childhood memories of the scars on his Dad’s chest from the early days of X-ray, a part of his life as a malaria survivor. He also remembers the mosquito tanker trucks that sprayed his neighborhood with DDT every season for mosquito control near his home.
This background led him to create the environmentally-friendly Mosquito Genie®. He instinctively knew there was a natural solution to mosquito control, and the outcome was Mosquito Genie®.
Co-Founder, James A (Jae) English
Jae has been in product development his whole career. In corporate America, including 13 years with Xerox, he was involved in design, marketing and management of more than a dozen major programs. As owner of Pacific Plastics since ’88, he has produced over a thousand different parts and contributed design input to hundreds of them.
Injection molding requires an expensive mold before the first plastic part is produced, and many start-up companies offer partnership opportunities in return for “free molds.” Jae learned early-on to resist such temptations if he wanted to stay in business.
However, after following Tom’s progress with Mosquito Genie® for several years, he realized that he wanted to join the project. He knew and trusted Tom, Tom needed his help, and Mosquito Genie® was a rare “feel-good” product. It had huge potential both from a business perspective and in its ability to benefit mankind by controlling mosquitoes.
Mosquito Genie ® is now one of Jae’s favorite projects because it brings to market a product that is affordable to anyone who wants to enjoy their yard, patio, or deck without mosquito bites.
Jae has an engineering degree from Penn State and an MBA from The Wharton School.
