With more than 20 years of experience in journalism and media relations, Todd has developed the relationships and an understanding of the media that are critical to communicating to a variety of audiences across diverse platforms.
Since joining S360 in 2017, Todd has helped a broad range of clients, from private companies and state and local government to clients seeking to solve political and public policy challenges. Todd’s role is to help S360 clients develop a media strategy and then engage with media to effectively communicate, promote and execute the plan. Todd achieves success for clients, in part, thanks to his reporter habits and skills in digging deep and inquiring broadly to understand the client’s needs and goals and then developing the most effective strategies for communicating those objectives.
Todd worked for The Associated Press for 13 years, including seven leading the AP bureau in Idaho. In this role, he supervised the AP’s coverage of Idaho politics, business, public education and breaking news, writing for statewide, national and global audiences. His journalism career includes working for newspapers in Montana, Michigan and Indiana. He also served two years as the spokesman for the Idaho Attorney General, a role that enabled him to oversee the AG’s media and public communications, including speechwriting and constituent services.
In his free time, Todd is an avid fly fisherman and aims to spend at least 25 nights each year camping under the stars. He and his wife, Meg, a public school teacher, also enjoy skiing, running, traveling around the West and hiking with their three dogs.
Todd earned a B.A. in history from the University of Minnesota.
