Who is Todd Hoffman?
Born under the sign of Aries on the 12th of April 1969, in Sandy, Oregon USA, Todd Hoffman is a 49-year-old Caucasian gold miner and TV personality of unknown descent. He is perhaps best known to the world for his significant presence on the TV screen as himself in the Discovery channel reality TV series entitled “Gold Rush.” He has also had a number of other successes throughout his sometimes lucrative mineral mining career since the 1990s.
Early Life: Growing up in Oregon
Career: From Airplanes to Gold Mining
Todd’s early work career is rather vague, but it is a fact that he was active in the aviation business for a while, leasing a hangar at an airstrip near Portland, Oregon, mostly to corporate officials. However, following the crash of the markets in the fall of 2008, Todd’s business was beginning to crumble. As he himself put it: ‘Travel is one of the first items to get cut once everyone’s earnings get squeezed.’ Hence, he decided to call it quits in this business, and start mining gold on his own. He initially didn’t have enough money to buy his own machines, so he personally built them out of cheap parts, meanwhile barely having enough for the oil to fuel it. This decision came about when he realized what was happening after the crisis, stating: ‘I’m no rocket scientist, but when you start printing money, start doing the things we’re currently doing, …you can’t debase gold, it’s common sense.’ Todd went around mining on his own for a while, until he eventually created a small showreel of what he does in Alaska, and sent it to the Discovery channel. Christo Doyle, a Discovery channel official, stated: ‘We fell in love with it right away. Greenlighting it was a no-brainer.’ The first episode appeared on TV screens on the 3rd of December 2010, and the show is thus far eight seasons long and still ongoing.

Love Life: Married to Shauna Hoffman
Nothing is known about Todd’s romantic involvements prior to the one he has spoken about himself in interviews. He has been married to Shauna Hoffman for over 20 years now, and they’ve produced two sons named Hunter and Hudson. As of season six, Hunter can be seen on the show with him, while Hudson is at this point too young to take part in such high-risk professions. There hasn’t been any controversy surrounding their union.
His Musical Hobby
Aside from being a gold miner, Todd Hoffman also has a widely recognized singing voice, having recorded quite a few covers of numerous famous songs thus far, such as “Sound of Silence” by Simon and Garfunkel. Though there is a big interest among the audience for his album, he hasn’t thus far announced any plans on diving deeper into a musical career.
