Omar Todd was born in Mornington, Victoria, a coastal town near Melbourne, Australia. His family later moved to Perth, Australia, and Todd studied at Christ Church Grammar School. Right after Omar began to seek out a career in computers and information technology, and by the time he was 18 years of age, he already had two computer shops.
