We are thrilled to be joined by our newest team member, Todd Hudgens!
What did you do before joining Virtual Peaker?
I grew up in Louisville and then went to Georgia Tech to get my bachelor’s in Computer Science with concentrations in User Interface Design and Education Technology. After college, I worked at an e-commerce start-up and then spent 10 years at a B2B communications company. Most recently, I did contract work at Virtual Peaker for a few months before I was asked to join the company full-time.
What’s your role at Virtual Peaker?
My role at Virtual Peaker is to make life easier for our clients, so I take lots of pride in developing user interfaces that are simple to use and understand. As a senior software developer, I feel fortunate to have joined this fast-paced team that is using technology to help the environment. As renewables continue to expand the energy mix and EVs become a more significant portion of the automotive fleet, the work we’re doing here at Virtual Peaker plays an important role in helping to manage that growth.
What else can you share?
I enjoy programming at home to make my own life easier—expense tracking, total cost of ownership for some new cars I’m looking at, stuff like that—and I also love to travel, including trips out west to snowboard.
With the travel limitations due to the pandemic, I’m trying to up my game cooking and brewing. I enjoy baking artisan-style breads, and hope to someday make them as good as what’s served at the Blue Dog Bakery in Louisville. I’ve been home brewing German- and Belgian-style beers since college, and I just planted some apple trees so that once they’re full size I can make small batches of cider for friends and family.
