I was Todd’s manager for several years but would certainly use the term "manage" very loosely because Todd is a very organized and driven employee. He loves his profession and is always striving to move the infrastructure forward. Todd's attention to detail and technical expertise made my job considerably easier. Todd has many talents including razor sharp focus, solid system administrator skills and the ability to execute the plan as designed. I highly recommend Todd to anyone looking for a skilled IT professional.
