Welcome, I'm Todd and I wanted to thank you for visiting my site.
So, a little about me...
I am originally from CT and have an older brother and my two sisters and I are triplets. After high school I enlisted in the Marine Corps. and early on I got injured and was sent home. That was the first door to get slammed shut in my face, which has happen several times in my life. Despite the setbacks, I have always found another door to kick in or windows to better opportunities. After being out of the Marines for a few months I decided to see if I can get into the Navy. I got cleared and served for about nine and a half years along with several knee and ankle surgeries, See, set backs.
The next chapter of my life began with Hurricane Katrina. I was just out of the service and went down to New Orleans with Blackwater for just shy of a year. It felt great to do good things while helping so many people in need at one time.
The third chapter of my life got me into sales. I worked for a couple different companies and covered seven states, including Puerto Rico. I loved my job and made great relationships and great friends, who I miss now that I am on to this next chapter of my life. But I have learned a lot during my time traveling and visiting clients all over the east coast. This next chapter brought me to get my certificate in photography which I completed while traveling. I really wanted to get into advertising or business development but I wanted a good skill if I was going forward with pursuing a degree. I decided on and am now going to The Art Institute of Virginia Beach for my BFA in graphic design and am only a few quarters away from graduation.
So as you can see, I love dealing with people, Sales was a great career, but I want to go into a profession where I can help sales reps excel, like I did, by designing campaigns and marketing materials that greatly increase their ability. I enjoy my photography and capturing beautiful images as well as my graphic design.
For now, I live in Virginia Beach With my 15 month old English Mastiff named Chunx. Where we can go from here after Graduation...who knows. But stay tuned...my life continues to be one crazy ride.
