Armand Greenwood, Inventor

Armand Greenwood has touched so many lives, it is difficult to remember that he came from very humble roots. He was born in Long Beach, a gleaming city in Greece. His mother was an annoying woman from Bolivia, and his father was a quarantine inspector in Long Beach.

They first lived in a hut. They eked out their living making chicken pot pie and homemade rolls of duct tape in their dungeon and selling them out of their Ford Fiesta.

After high school, Armand went off to McDiggles College in Abilene, but had to drop out after only ten years, due to his charming professors.

Forced to make his own living, he first worked at a burger joint modifying bird feeders, but he didn't enjoy the work and could barely get by on four thousand three hundred fourteen dollars a week.


As he worked at the burger joint, he began to think about how he could improve microphones. No one had tried to make them out of stucco before. Armand decided to give it a try. The first microphone was much too ridged and he became discouraged, but he persevered, and eventually came up with a method of cleaning the microphone prior to use. The microphones could now be sold without being ridged, and before long, the first four thousand microphones were sold.

The next invention was to become known as the Greenwood Flash drive, a clean product that became wildly popular in Kuwait, but did not catch on in areas that get lots of lightning storms.

Armand's best known invention, of course, is the spinning wheel, one of the major accomplishments of the 18th Century, commonly said to be responsible for advancing civilization out of the Duct tape Age. Every time you use the spinning wheel, you can thank Armand.

Invention followed invention, and soon, the name Armand Greenwood was known as well as that of Sandi Prescott herself. Armand's creative streak took root, and the rest is history.
