After graduating from New College of Florida, Todd offered to help a friend on a senior thesis film. Holding on to a massive light in a rainstorm, Todd had so much fun that he changed his career path from Literature Professor to Filmmaker.
Working his way up through the ranks on film sets, Todd went onto be the creative assistant and second unit director and DP for commercial and music video director Joseph Kahn. As a second-unit director and DP, Todd has worked with Bon Jovi, Sum 41, Ford, Bacardi, Adidas, Nike, Smartcar, Bud Lite and Target. He ventured out on his own and poured his passion into a feature length documentary about Thailand’s underground child boxing economy. The film, "Buffalo Girls" premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival in 2012 and continues to garner recognition and awards at festivals internationally.
The film sparked interest from the Clinton Foundation, who commissioned a 90-second spot documenting the work the foundation has done to stop the spread of HIV in Malawi. It premiered to a standing ovation at the Foundation's 10-year celebration at the famed Hollywood Bowl in front of celebrities, dignitaries and the former first family.
Todd currently resides in Los Angeles.
