Bernie Selvey
We worked together  •  Sr. Applications Engineer, Viddler. Previously Sales Executive, Market Reader Pro.
Todd has the ability to think outside of the mainstream. His ability to take a business problem/need and apply his technical know how to fin ... d a solution and then implement a workflow to solve this problem is unsurpassed. He doesn't let technical limitations or people tell him he can't do something get in his way. He is driven to be a problem solver. Todd's desire to succeed is trumped by his knowledge of the full stack. He's able to take a deep dive into network architecture and yet be able to speak in terms in terms of solving a specific problem. He's a risk taker that often leads to sleepless nights and doesn't get discouraged when it takes time to build a solution. I had the pleasure of working along side Todd for 3 years and he was always available, anytime of day, no matter where he was at. Though in his heart he's an engineer, his ability to clearly communicate is rare in his profession. Being a close friend, I'm aware that Todd is always working on some side project, whether for fun or 'to just try something to see what happens'. Through the last 6+ years I've known Todd, when he is presented with an opportunity he will put his heart and soul in it.

We worked together  •  Vice President of Audience Development, StyleHaul, Inc.. Previously Director of Sales and Strategy, vidIQ. University of California, Santa Barba
After working in Silicon Valley for over 10 years, I've come across few people as intelligent and creative as Todd. One of the most intellig ... ent, honest and all around great guys I've ever met.
Gabe Polk
We worked together  •  Product Manager, Yahoo and Product Manager, BrightRoll. University of California, Santa Barbara grad.
Todd has an amazing mind and ability to take complicated technical concepts and make them a reality. He's an analytical and data oriented th ... inker, and is constantly in search of clever ways he can improve Product and solve challenging problems. As an engineering and tech leader, Todd drove vidIQ through incredible growth (<500 to over 8k users in less than a year) and rallied the engineering team around his vision. In addition to his superb technical abilities Todd is a genuinely good person, and I enjoyed working with him tremendously. He'd be a valuable asset to any team.

Bernie is one of the most resourceful guys I know- never has a shortage of enthusiasm and grit to get stuff done and spreads good vibes to e ... verybody around while doing it. He's a thinker and has the rare mix of internal forces that make him at home in an early stage company. I'd jump at the chance to work with him again!
