Todd is a highly competent Java developer. He works well with other team members and has proven himself to be a patient and skilled mentor as well. In addition to his exceptional technical abilities, Todd also possesses phenomenal people skills, able to communicate with others in a clear and respectful manner. I look forward to my next opportunity to work with Todd.
Working with and for Todd has been both rewarding and challenging. Todd understands delegation of not only responsibility, but empowerment of the right person to make a decision at the correct level. Todd performed the role of Customer Representative well, knowing when to go back for more information and also focusing on making sure that expectations were managed appropriately. That particular balancing act is extremely difficult to perform well, and Todd pulled it off flawlessly.
Todd is one of the most versatile and experienced engineers who I have had the great pleasure of working with. Todd brings an innovative approach to problem solving based on his wealth of experience. Todd isn't shaken by extreme pressure, he has the ability to stay clam and focused. His background includes proficiency in a wide spectrum of technologies which allows him to tackle challenges from a unique perspective. He is easy to work with, dependable, and always delivers.
Todd is one of the best database developers I've worked with. We worked closely together on several initiatives for Microsoft. His attention to detail and dedication are exceptional. Todd understands how to communicate with a variety of audiences (from novice to super technical). He uses layman terms to break down complex technical solutions. I learned a lot from Todd. He is the real deal.
Todd asked Portland Data to build a web application in a relatively tight timeframe. Todd was great to work for, providing clear and timely instruction, allowing the project to be completed within the time available.
Todd is an excellent network computing technician and problem solver.
Two words, "Rock Star". The best technical professional I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
Todd was one of our top people, both in technical ability and customer relations. He was dedicated to challenging himself, always expanding his technical knowledge and business acumen. We have had occasion to work together since leaving CapTech, and Todd continues to be one of the best.
Todd is a person you want on your team. He brings a broad spectrum of knowledge, business sense, and leadership qualities that make him a desireable member of any organization. He was a respected member of CapTech's staff and his opinions and insights were often sought by top management.
Todd brings the coding ability and technology savvy of a world-class developer to every project he takes on. But, he also thinks and acts like a businessperson, speaks like a regular human being even when the topic is highly technical, and has the spirit of a creative. He's both the guy you want in front of a client and the guy you send into the back-room to roll up his sleeves and figure stuff out.
I found Todd late one evening when I was frustrated and searched the internet for a local vendor that could help rework our corporate website to include content management. I picked up the phone to leave him a message but he answered the phone. It was the beginning of a great relationship. He met with us, listened carefully to our requirements and came back with a great proposal and created a highly creative site that our business associates could manage themselves with little to no technical support. He also hosted the site for us. I would highly recommend Todd and his organization, they are creative, professional and a joy to work with.
