COPYWRITER + ACD
Todd is one of the most brilliant, easiest and fun people to collaborate with and has an amazing ability to translate a set of experiences into a compelling narrative. His passion for distilling down a concept to its essence would help any brand or communication director.
—Michael Leifer, CEO, guerilla PR
Todd is an amazing thinker. Highly creative with an emotional intelligence that is quite uncommon. He has a sensitivity toward crafting words that move people to laugh, cry, respond, contemplate, feel and more. He is a true wordsmith to the core and can be counted on for just about any assignment. I love working with him as his spirit of collaboration provides a settled confidence the job will get done on time, and done well. Use him often, you'll be glad you did.
—Dean Del Sesto, CEO, Venthio
