Todd grew up on rollercoasters and ketchup and bologna sandwiches in the Lake Erie "Vacationland" of Sandusky, Ohio. A graduate of NYU Film School, Todd wrote and produced EDGE OF SEVENTEEN, a feature based on his coming-out experience and filmed in his Ohio hometown. EDGE was awarded Best Picture at both The San Francisco International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and at Outfest, where Todd also picked up the prize for Best Screenplay. EDGE screened at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival and was released theatrically. The film was nominated for both an Independent Spirit Award and a GLAAD Media Award.
Todd is currently in post-production on the gay teen sex comedy ANOTHER GAY MOVIE. In 2002, he wrote THE DANA RIVERS STORY for Lifetime Television and Storyline Entertainment. Other projects in the works include FLAMINGOS, set in a gay retirement home, and SMART MOB, a quirky crime thriller based on a true story. Todd was selected by Filmmaker magazine as one of their "25 New Directors to Watch."
