Beginning with classical piano training at a very early age, Todd’s musical path eventually led to classical training in percussion. During these formative years, a natural tendency towards developing melodies, chord progressions and sonic motifs began to emerge. With a simultaneous interest in electronic synthesis emerging, the passion to compose was born.
Recognizing the value of the production end of composing, Todd initially endeavored to obtain a professional, working mastery of the engineering, producing, editing, mixing and mastering processes, giving him the means to produce his own work, as well asan entrance into the world of sound design.
Todd now works full time as a composer for film. His passion is to take an intellectual concept or idea and struggle to find the musical, emotional equivalent that enhances what it is.
His work has been featured internationally, appeared on syndicated television networks (including The Travel Channel International), and has been nominated for several awards. He has an ongoing working relationship with Jim Daneker (composer, keyboardist for Michael W. Smith), has worked with Jordana Spiro(Dexter, My Boys), and Sergio Meyers (LA Love Story, Becoming Pony Boi).
His main musical influences include Gregorian Chant, björk, Enya, Peter Gabriel, Trent Reznor, Imogen Heap, BT, Hans Zimmer, KMFDM, The Cure, and old hymns.
“Praise God with the sounding of the trumpet, praise Him with the harp and the lyre, praise Him with tambourine and dancing, praise Him with the strings and the flute”.
