Todd Williams - Surfer / Software Engineer
I always had a love for two seemingly opposite worlds: surfing and computers. Growing up in Huntington Beach exposed me to a one of a kind surf culture with events like the HB Surf Series and the US Open of Surfing. There is nothing like surfing a 4 hour session, coming home and hacking on some code for the rest of the day. Some of the most amazing moments of my life have revolved around the ocean. I hope to use the skills I've learned as a software developer to help improve the waves that inspire me to wake every morning.
~ God created an amazing planet for us to live in, let's take care of it!
