Todd von Hoffman came West from New Jersey in 1982 for a brief visit and subsequently, with his wife, Theo, settled in Venice in 1986 and raised their daughter Kristina there. Loving the Venice vibe & history, which felt like a cross between Coney Island & Greenwich Village, the family has participated in many civic celebrations including the 2005 Centennial, the annual Mardi Gras Parade, Neptune Festival, and a VNC Neighborhood BBQ with the local Station 63 Fire Dept. that lasted 10 years. Todd spearheaded the Venice Sign Restoration Project with a great team of locals and, this iconic landmark was completed in 2007. He is also a collector of Venice historic images & artifacts, and now, with other collectors, is working on a proposed history museum for Venice.

Survive and Thrive Today is a community that supports entrepreneurs through action, shared resources, information, connections and opportunities to assist them as they strive for success.
