Todd was first exposed to the outdoors through Boy Scouts of America at age 12. Thanks to the BSA, his outdoor interests and experiences include climbing, skiing, backpacking, fly fishing, and rafting. Todd started his career in firefighting and EMS at age 16, and left his home in Virginia at age 22. His career has taken him from the DC metropolitan area to Idaho, Zion National Park, Antarctica, and Afghanistan. Todd has worked as an EMT, paramedic, critical care paramedic, structural firefighter, wildland firefighter, and has served with multiple search and rescue organizations. Currently, he lives in Boise and spends his days exploring the Pacific Northwest and exposing his daughter to as much of the outdoors as possible.
