Todd grew up in Mammoth Lakes, a lover of the mountains and the outdoors. He was a hiker, skier, rock climber and amateur photographer.  He lived an adventurous life;  loved animals, politics and had a passion for history.

After completing studies in Enology in Sonoma county Todd was employed at Owl Ridge Crush Pad, starting as a Lab Tech and then asst Winemaker under Greg LaFollette. He traveled to Lo Barca, Chile working as a Winemaker with Vina Casa Marin, where his first wine produced an International award for 2007 Best of Chile Sauvignon Blanc . Additionally he helped to develop a formula to naturally remove “smoke Taint” from wine grapes before they are crushed; a formula used by vineyards and wineries experiencing destructive taint from annual wildfires in Western states and Eastern Australia. Todd donated the formula publicly; published in Wine and Spirits.

No matter where he traveled or lived, he called the Sierras his home.                                          We loved him and he will be deeply missed.
