Prior to becoming a Physical Therapist, Todd worked on a Forest Service hotshot crew fighting wildfires in some of the most remote and challenging conditions. Todd understands the various demands that manual laborers, mountain athletes, and even desk jockeys can inflict upon their bodies. Whether dealing with a chronic injury or recovering from a surgery, he strives to find creative ways to enable others to keep moving and moving well.

Todd grew up playing competitive soccer and wrestling year round. While he never strays too far from the wrestling mat, these days he spends as much free time as possible climbing rocks, mountain biking, splitboarding, or hiking with his wife and daughter.
