David Sandoval

Founder | CEO

While studying Film at the University of California at Santa Barbara, Dave would use a fanny pack to sneak cold beverages into 2 dollar movie theater (he is also a deal enthusiast). Later on, while working in education, Dave noticed that students would often lug a giant backpack around just to carry a lunch. From these experiences and observations, Dave decided that the fanny pack was an under-designed and under-utilized object and Gopacka Fanny Packs was born with the singular goal of elevating fanny pack design and creating new types and uses of fanny packs.

Marina Christodoulides

Founder | Design Director

With a background in architecture and urban design, Marina was stricken by a unique design challenge – How do you make a fanny pack extra functional and attractive? She never would have considered this unique problem if it hadn’t been for Dave. Now she is driven to see how far the fanny pack can go!
