He graduated from the Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism program at the International Centre of Photography.

His work was published in Time magazine, Grazia, and numerous online news sites.

Todd is passionate about helping communities under threat by utilizing his skills as a documentary photographer and his ability to communicate and implement ideas effectively to institute change. His extensive international business background and time as Director of an NGO married with his education and experience in visual journalism has honed his skills as a planner, communicator, and determined individual who can take an idea from inspiration to reality.
