The Founder’s Story

Since I was a young boy, I’ve been a competitive surfer and admirer of the ocean. When I was sixteen years old, I became an Ocean Safety Lifeguard for the city of Laguna Beach until I graduated high school. During these years, my passion to protect marine life was born. From cleaning up coastline mudslides to enforcing marine safety laws, I grew a desire to protect the ocean. As a poor college student, the least I could do to reduce my plastic consumption was to revert to using a reusable stainless steel water bottle. After a few weeks of using this bottle, I was disgusted by odd smells and tastes that developed in the bottle. After doing some research, I learned the odor was caused by an exponential build-up of bacteria within the bottle. Along with this fear of growing bacteria in my bottle, I was constantly unconfident about the quality of drinking water available to me. As a diagnosed germaphobe, I immediately tasked myself with finding a solution. When I was a young Boy Scout, I remembered using a UVC light to purify water while on a backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevada's. I knew that this technology would be the solution to my worries. I then walked into BYU’s engineering building and made friends with an intelligent engineer who helped me create the solution to my pains. Together, we created the Luma Bottle, a reusable water bottle that integrated UVC light technology to clean the bottle and purify water.
