In 2011, Todd had a desire to find a marketing agency that could handle the launch of one of his many businesses. He found that many of the local marketing companies usually focused on one, maybe two, services. Without successfully finding what we was looking for, he started what is now called Pacific Sky. In 2015, he took his company and made it a employee-owned company. Pacific Sky was among the first marketing agencies in Redding to have everything under one roof. Todd is also famous for his Margaritas, which coincidentally is also his favorite snack. Yes, drinks can be snacks m’kay? Biggest fear: Karaoke.

He has worked with such companies as Animal Planet, ABC, PBS, ITV, Bethel TV and many other companies doing live broadcast, commercials, documentaries, music videos and movies.

So pretty much he just wanted to be awesome when he grew up. Good thing he settled on Cinematographer. Biggest fear: Clowns
