As a budding architect and ecological designer, Todd Jersey began designing and building at 10 years old. His first experiments in solar hot water were in 1970 when he was 12. Remaining curious, innovative and protective of the earth, Mr. Jersey has spent the last 30 years designing and building some of California's most beautiful and sustainable projects including the world's first LEED Gold hotel and the nation's greenest and healthiest indoor pool, the historic Richmond Plunge.
Between 2007-2012, during a downturn in the construction industry, Mr. Jersey was busy creating a new commercial/residential mixed-use prototype called Collaborative Housing and becoming an expert in urban mobility and parking issues to decrease the impact of the automobile on urban infill sites. This work has informed the many urban infill projects currently underway at Todd Jersey Architecture.
In 2012, Mr. Jersey joined CyberTran International Inc. as the head of planning and architecture for a new ultra-light rail transit (ULRT) system called CyberTran®. Mr. Jersey is working with CyberTran on the design of the newest generation of vehicle and station design as well as planning out system routes and Transit Oriented Developments (TOD) at the new CyberTran® stations.
