Prior to going to college, Todd worked as a graphic designer intern in his hometown of Rockford, IL, then moved to New York City to further his experience as a designer.

After teaching art and painting for his first few years out of school, he embarked on graduate studies in Painting and Printmaking graduating with an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design.
