A lifelong Chicagoan, minus several years spent living in France and San Francisco, Todd is most comfortable standing near an idling CTA bus on a dusty, August afternoon. He earned his Master of Architecture degree from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Illinois, where he spent a year in the Versailles, France Study Abroad Program. Prior to arriving at architecture, he trained as a writer and bartender, where he gained skills that continue to complement his work as a design professional. In and out of the office Todd enjoys: advocating for the big picture, solving other peoples' problems, drawing buildings, attempting to read, exhilarating travel, and pickled foods.
Everyone here works like animals, but smells like flowers.
