About Todd Vasquez

I like to get to the essence of things. I studied religion to its apex in the doctrine of the Trinity. I journeyed through the Greek and Hebrew of the Bible to discover its foundations in the love commandments of Deuteronomy 6 and John 17.

Now others use it as a simple, reliable way to manage their own workflows and I use it to achieve my dreams and goals.
