Todd is responsible for writing grants, crafting press materials, working with clients to create funding solutions and overseeing the implementation of projects such as the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). He is a nationally-published author who has spoken across the country on topics such as how businesses can capitalize on downtown revitalization efforts and how to engage a diverse merchant population.
Prior to Triad, Todd led three lives. In his first life, he served as Chief of Staff and Press Secretary for a New Jersey State Senator, Interim Chief of Staff for an Assemblyman and a Legislative Aide for a US Congressman, where he handled matters related to defense, foreign affairs, national security and the environment. Todd’s second life took place in the private sector, where he worked in sales and program development for two major southern NJ tourist destinations. In his third life, Todd served as an executive director for the Vineland Downtown Improvement District where he supervised the revitalization of Landis Avenue.
Todd, a husband and father to two daughters, graduated from Stockton State College (now Stockton University) with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science. He is a writer at heart and is currently working on a biography, a musical, several short stories, and a travelogue about his recent missions trip to Haiti. Todd’s love for writing has given him an interesting talent: he can spell any word in the English language backwards within seconds. And if that isn’t fascinating enough Todd, like most everyone else, is separated from Kevin Bacon by less than six degrees.
