Visionary. Entrepreneur. Philanthropist.
I am literally none of these.

My name is Todd

and I’m from the streets.

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that you'd love to read a long-winded paragraph written by some stranger on the internet attempting to describe themselves accurately, but really kind of coming off as a douchebag. Well, you've come to the right place.

You might recognize me as the world's most notorious Slack chatter, but I didn't always have this life of fame and glory. Back when I was a kid living in the East Village, I would spend hours tirelessly perfecting my Starcraft record while my neighbors did heroin in Tompkins Square Park. My love for technology probably started then, when I realized I'd rather create digital art than be forced to chill in the playground with a bunch of junkies.

Anyway, I'm a tech guy. I've been a product manager for 8 years, spent a few years in IT, and I'm not really sure what my title is now but there's a lot of JIRA involved. Look, if you're trying to make cool shit, I'm probably a good guy to have around.

CAREER

Product

I’ve spent a decade in various product manager roles overseeing prduct strategy, execution, and optimization. Forever a student of product, I will always see technology with a discening eye.

Software

I maintain a hobby for front and backend web development for personal projects. This interest has since expanded to include corporate application integrations, QA, and enterprise-level fixes.
