His products including the Agility Paddles and the Neptune MP3 Player have won prestigious Red Dot awards for their innotavie designs. The FINIS SwiMP3 X18 was nominated for the 2012 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year. The World Open Water Swimming Association nomination reads,

FINIS SwiMP3 X18 has changed the way many athletes swim. This waterproof MP3 player provides the highest quality underwater sound without the use of ear buds, thanks to its revolutionary Bone Conduction audio transmission. Swimmers enjoy the SwiMP3 on long open water swims or during pool workout. The SwiMP3 attaches securely to goggle straps and rests on the cheekbones so it does not interfere with proper swimming technique. Because the SwiMP3 does not require ear buds, swimmers are still able to hear voices, sounds and directions during open water swims. For its healthy 2GB of storage, for its functionality that enables aquatic athletes to listen to music, audio books and podcasts with a surprisingly clarity of sound and ease of use, the FINIS SwiMP3 is a worthy nominee for the 2012 WOWSA Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
