He took his first airplane flight when he was only three weeks old from Boston to his parent's home near Cleveland, Ohio. Todd was raised in Olmsted Falls, Ohio, where he was joined by his sister Brooke, brothers Ned and Reid and sister Heather. Todd with his childhood friend started trapping muskrats for their pelts in the wintertime when he was just eleven years old. He had a beloved Irish setter name Bridget which he bred with champion sires. Each time his eleven puppies were sold to families in several states. Those families kept in touch with Todd with notes and pictures of their pups. Todd attended Olmsted Falls High School, Western Reserve Academy, Graduated from Hudson High School, and attended Berea College and Cleveland Community College. While still in Ohio, he and a good friend hiked the Appalachian Mountain trail from Maine to New York State. While living in Denton, Texas, Todd became the manager of a spirits store in Lake Dallas. There he studied many of the wines from throughout the world and educated customers on the finest wines the world produced. The store named their wine selection room, "Todd's Winery." Todd later founded his own Carpet Cleaning Company called, "Rancho Deluxe" which he ran successfully for over thirty years. His dog Mandy often accompanied him to work. Many of Todd's customers became good friends to Todd because of his caring and accessible ways. Todd was a member of the Denton Chamber of Commerce.
