Driven by an interest in social connections, Todd’s career has taken him around the country and the world. He studied mechanical engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (B.S.) and Johns Hopkins University (M.S.), where his research on surgical skill evaluation led him to the medical technology industry. He held positions at several medical device companies focused on interventional catheters and tools for robotic surgery. Then a unique opportunity came up for Todd and his wife to join a social enterprise in Myanmar, where Todd led the manufacturing operations making irrigation equipment specifically designed for low-income farmers. He returned to the US to join the Stanford Biodesign fellowship, out of which he co-founded Tueo Health, a digital health company for asthma management, and also enjoyed a stint as a product manager at one of Silicon Valley’s tech giants. Todd loves to get dirty with numbers and tools but is always focused on the people at the interface with technology and the context of what he’s working on.
