As a boy in Ethiopia, David Zogo dreamed of coming to America. That dream came true when his family emigrated in 2010, settiling in New Rochelle, NY.
In high school David founded a club enabling students’ political activism. That led to an internship offer from New York Congressman Eliot Engel.
In his senior year, David raised more than $3,000 for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. He missed his high school prom because he was working a campaign phone bank.
He began college but quickly realized that he had more political work to do. On leave from Fordham, he looked for work in politics. Canvassing was the only job offered, so he began there.
In short time he became a Bronx field organizer for Governor Cuomo’s primary campaign. Success led to his becoming regional field director for Jared Polis in Colorado. There he helped expand an operation of four canvassers to fifty-five in less than two months. On election day, they knocked on 80,000 doors.
At twenty-one, David became director of community outreach for Assemblyman Dan Quart’s campaign for district attorney, working to strengthen the campaing’s focus on social justice and volunteering.
In April of 2020, the woman David thought of as his American grandmother, Rev. Dr. Bishop Primrose James, died of COVID-19. Game Head is his monument to her memory.

Immanuel B Okoyen
I am Nigerian, son of a diplomat, so we do a lot of traveling. In 2015, I moved to New York and met David Zogo, the CEO of GameHeadInc. After finishing two years of undergraduate studies in the University of Bedfordshire in England, I took a break from my studies. While in school I was also chasing my professional career in football.
At first, David approached me as he has done over the years to brainstorm about ways to better ourselves in the future. At that time, GameHeadInc was an idea David had, but not a reality yet. A week later he contacted me about joining the team. He knows that I’m a hard-working team player, and he is aware of the kind of exposure I can get for GameHeadInc through my career as a footballer.
I am very grateful to David for making me part of this and in due time GameHeadInc will rip my efforts and see the value in the asset that is my self. Again, thank you very much for the opportunity.

Growing up in another country, Lluvia—Lluvi for short—struggled a lot to find a place to call home. She traveled and moved around a lot until she finally settled in New Rochelle.
Here she made great connections and met wonderful people who’ve loved her for her authenticity and genuine style.
Lluvi found a home here at GameHeadInc where she can display her talents and do what she loves. As the Gamebabez brand manager she gets to use her unique fashion style to design clothing for the wonderful Gamehead babez and guys.
The amazing Lluvi knows it’s not easy to get far in life, but all you need is that one chance, that one person who believes in you. Lluvi has a chance to help bring opportunities to any girls willing to take them. When looking for the next Gamehead babe model Lluvi takes pride in diversity and in giving everyone an equal chance.
