A lifelong passion for living near the ocean has guided Todd’s career as a coastal engineer, with a focus on sustainability and resiliency.
Over nearly two decades, Todd has worked on a multitude of projects involving shoreline and habitat protection and restoration, particularly in the field of numerical modeling. These models allow for highly detailed, site-specific assessments of hydrodynamics, meteorology, waves, morphology, and constituent transport not possible using measured data alone, and allow for insight into historical events and previews of future scenarios. As a result, Todd can design fine-tuned solutions for challenges such as marsh rehabilitation and coastal protection in the face of increased human development and climate change, as evidenced by the thriving restoration underway at Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge.
Outside of the office, Todd enjoys the coastal Florida life, whether he’s surfing, biking, grilling, or hanging out on the beach with his family.
