Todd Knowles

As founder of Stashbird, you might have seen Todd’s name credited on my pages and articles. Todd, as many others in the industry, started out in 2001 as an avid player of online Blackjack and Poker, and managed to work his way up to a pretty high level. After almost 8 years of playing on and off, he was earning enough from playing in online Blackjack and Poker tournaments that he decided to quit his full time job at the time as a high school English teacher to focus entirely on his online Blackjack and Poker career.

He then went on to make a name for himself in the online Blackjack scene and won various big tournaments, as well as the respect of many players. In the summer of 2020, he felt that after playing Blackjack for over 11 years, he just wasn’t enjoying it as much as he used to when he just started. Todd then came up with the idea to start a website of his own to share all the information he had gathered over the years of playing online Poker, Blackjack and many other casino games at various online casinos. This ended up becoming Stashbird, which was launched in September 2020.
