Boyd Bruner

Boyd BrunerBoyd Bruner is the chief engineer at ModobagĀ®.

From its first inception, to prototyping in 'the garage' Boyd has been a key developer in all phases of the Modobag's engineering and design. His mechanical background and his love of racing led him to this project simply, because he though it was a great idea.

Boyd has always loved things that go fast, be it his childhood bicycle, his skateboard or his favorite motorcycle. He also has an insatiable desire to stretch the boundaries of technology. He studied International Business and Industrial Design at the University of Illinois Chicago (yes, he and Kevin are college buddies), then furthered his studies at DePaul University. Boyd honed his technical training at Triton College for Technical Automotive, and apprenticed as a Master Technician and Crew Chief for Yamaha and Suzuki motorcycle brands. Boyd has won multiple AMA National victories as Crew Chief and Lead Technician and built the motorcycle that won the 2014 Daytona 200.

"Modobag is one of the most innovative and exciting advancements to hit the travel industry since rolling suitcases were introduced in the 1970's. I have test driven the Modobag at heavily-trafficked airports, including O'Hare, JFK and LaGuardia. From the first-time traveler to the veteran flight attendant, there is widespread agreement that Modobag will help make travel more functional and fun. Where once travelers had to run through the airport with heavy gear to catch connections they can now get where they need to be on time, on their Modobag." -Kevin O'Donnell
