"I really enjoyed working with Todd at Bonanza. He's a talented designer with versatile skill set and an all-around great guy to work with. After starting at Bonanza, Todd fearlessly jumped into several major projects and immediately made a big impact. He developed great ideas for refining major parts of the website and app, while also working hard to then bring them to life.

In addition to his design skills and work ethic, what really struck me about Todd was his superb ability to collaborate with the entire team. When starting a project, Todd was always sure to involve stakeholders from different teams, asking great questions to get to the root of the problem he was solving. He was really great about giving and receiving design feedback, which made for a great partnership between the two of us. He was also great about partnering with the development team, ensuring the goals and details of each project were well-communicated."
