Born of Dutch, Irish and Albanian descent, Todd began doing art at age three. At age six, he was strumming his mom's broom and singing to his favorite 60s music. As a teen living in Europe, Todd's creative passions were greatly inspired by the European Masters in both realism, etherealism and surrealism, particularly from studying the sketchbooks of Michelangelo, Dore and Dali. From the time Artist Jeff Haynie spent an afternoon with Todd showing some ethereal techniques with the airbrush, and sharing visuals of Christ and the Sword of the Spirit that matched Todd's own visions and dreams during direct encounter with the Presence of God, that this supernatural mentoring connection began to bear fruit and is still evident today. Musically, the pioneers of progressive 70s music had a great influence on Todd’s creative soul, as he began to flow as an artist of sight and sound. Aafter a spiritual awakening and personal encounter with God, Todd began writing what one might term as being “modern day proverbs”, and deep, intimate sermonettes and devotionals for today’s believer. His time spent with his third personal mentor in his walk, learning about direct, intimate relationship with God, set him on a course to a deeper, more fulfilling spiritual walk with Christ. His writings jettison his reader’s over the bow of the boat, to walk on the water with Jesus. His readers are ushered into the presence of the Lord, where Heaven is released in their lives and eventually... from their lives... enjoy!!
