Todd is the co-founder of Atlanta-based Hi-Rez Studios, one of the largest video game studios in the Southeast, and CEO of Skillshot Media, the largest dedicated esports production company on the east coast.
Todd submitted his first computer game to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as part of his college application, since writing games was more fun than writing essays. After obtaining his BS in Computer Science from the same university, Todd entered the software engineering industry, eventually managing product development at NCR, Radiant Systems, and BlueCube Software.
In 2005 he left FinTech for the games industry when he co-founded Hi-Rez Studios. Hi-Rez’ titles include the mythology themed, action MOBA SMITE and the fantasy team-based shooter Paladins, both played as competitive esports. In 2018 more than $4,000,000 will be earned by the best professional Smite and Paladins players around the globe, and between Hi-Rez Studios and Skillshot Todd works with partners to advance the development and production of new and existing esports.
