Todd Kratz, Software Developer

Todd joined the MākuSafe in January 2020, excited for new challenges and opportunities.  Todd comes to us with 25 years of software development experience on a variety of platforms, in many programming languages and for several products including embedded GPS, avionics test, PC tools, games and web apps.  
Todd grew up in Iowa, served overseas in the military, and later attended the University of Iowa where he earned a BS in computer science.  “I’m one of those guys that codes for fun, and have run my own game development studio.”
Todd lives with his wife in Des Moines where they enjoy trying new restaurants with friends, spending time with family, and traveling.

Calvin Hall, Software Developer

Calvin joined MākuSafe in December 2019. He’s a programmer, with roughly ten years of Java experience. His interests include most aspects of computer science, from basic algorithms to compilers and operating systems, and is fluent in many languages and technologies.

Calvin started programming in early middle school, writing bots for his favorite games. Eventually deciding he’d make a career in programming, Calvin has accumulated diverse knowledge and skills and has a desire to continue learning.
