Recently, Todd was asked to give a seven minute talk by the University of Minnesota's College of Design where he studied to become a graphic designer. He spoke along with six other design professionals about how they got to where they are and shared stories from their careers. Todd's career path has been an unusual and very non-linear one and said, "I think it's helped me to grow not only as a designer, but as a person. I chose to speak about this, to inspire students to try new things and experience different viewpoints. One of the coolest things was that I received an illustration of myself created for the event by the talented Max Lindorfer." Check out the video here, it's only 7 minutes.
