Todd began climbing in 1991; after returning to Germany from Operation Desert Storm and was assigned to a 3 week course in military mountaineering in the German Alps. During those three weeks he realized that outdoor pursuits would play an important role in his future. Since that time he has worked full time as both a professional guide and outdoor pursuit’s instructor. His career has afforded him the opportunity to trek, climb and paddle throughout North America, South America, Africa and Europe but he always returned to Northern New England. He is currently the Director of Wilderness Programs at Saint Michael's College where he instruct wilderness medicine, rock/ice/alpine climbing, sea kayaking, whitewater kayaking and leadership courses. He firmly believes that mountain sports and outdoor pursuits are accessible to everyone and being present when a client or student makes a connection is both an honor and the source of his professional motivation. In addition, he is committed to providing "state of the sport" training, coaching and information in all disciplines.
