Subject: Who "invented" touch point math?

I vaguely remember meeting a person while I worked in a book and stationery store in Oregon, who began telling me about his concept for a new mathematical technique called Touch Point Math. Since then, I have seen this technique used over the years and am now an avid fan and teaching it to my own 3rd grade classroom. I would like to know if indeed the man I met in Oregon was the actual originator, and/or what that person's name is.
