Todd Koym

Todd found his way to WAJF via a merging of two vocations: environmental policy and information technology. After graduating from Texas Christian University in 1989, his interest in information technology led him to Electronic Data Systems where he worked as a systems engineer. In his six years with EDS he moved from coast to coast helping companies and state governments migrate from mainframe systems to client-server database systems. The work was challenging and rewarding, but not fulfilling. His interest in sustainable energy took him to the University of Minnesota where he earned a Master of Arts in Public Affairs with a concentration in Technology, Energy, and Environment. For two years he worked for Minnesotans for an Energy-Efficient Economy. Among other projects at ME3, he built an Internet-based Action Alert System to facilitate communication with members and activists and performed analysis using Geographic Information Systems for a study on the environmental impacts of urban sprawl in the Twin Cities. He is very excited to have found a career catering to both his passions.

Todd enjoys golf, skiing, and snowshoeing (obviously a product of his stay in Minnesota, not of his Texas upbringing). He is a lover of music, especially jazz, and likes to treat himself to the symphony at least once a year.
