Todd began playing trumpet in the 5th grade and after moving a few times, ended up in Northeast Ohio where he played in high school, and eventually at The University of Akron. During that time, Todd played with numerous groups, and was a member of the United Way All Collegiate Band and has played at Disneyland, Rose Bowl Herald Trumpets, and various performances including the Kennedy Center with the “Pershing’s Own” Herald Trumpets.
After college, Todd got a real paying job (to pay for his fascination of buying different trumpets), married a trumpet player from Ohio U (Carla), and now has 3 kids (all playing trumpet). During moves in 5 states & global travels – Todd seeks out local groups to play with, most recently Gwinnett Community Band, and local Atlanta jazz groups including CCX. Todd combines his interest in trumpets and marketing through the creation of popular trumpet websites such as BrassReview and BachLoyalist.
