After a 30-year career in brand building, marketing, communications, coaching, and more, I have curated a unique set of skills and experiences in order to help people on their unique paths. From entrepreneurs building their businesses to teens building themselves, I work with individuals and organizations of all shapes and sizes.
Our best lives and biggest successes are all about creating deeper connections. About building bridges. These are connections we make to ourselves, our communities, and to our place in the world. These connections answer how we want to show up each and every day. They are the foundation for our happiness, our health, the art we create, the love we make, and the joy we feel. Our connections are the foundation for A Day Well Lived. And A Life Well Lived.
Our work together combines the breadth of my experiences as an entrepreneur, communications expert, speaker, certified transformation coach (and even taps into my early experiences as a camp counselor and soccer coach). This is not one-size-fits-all work. Because no journeys, no dreams, are exactly the same. We go deep together. This is brave work. Authentic work. Vulnerable work. And, yes, it’s risky work. It’s not easy to make your dreams come true. If it were … everyone would be doing it.
My past experience includes being the founder and chief creative officer of a Bay Area-based creative shop, Skadaddle Media. I grew the agency from conception to employing more than 20 staffers while bringing in millions of dollars in annual fees. I oversaw and developed all creative for Skadaddle, which counted Mutual of Omaha, Airstream, Sovos Brands, and Oracle among our clients. We created and produced national advertising campaigns, experiential tours, social media campaigns, iPhone applications, attention-grabbing events, and even developed and sold an animated golf-themed TV show.
Prior to starting Skadaddle, I worked with leading companies like Rogers & Cowan, Hill & Knowlton, CBSSportsline.com and TiVo, I worked on the largest events in the world, including World Cup (soccer), Super Bowl, Rose Bowl, Ironman Triathlon and Pete Newell Challenge, among others. I also engaged with athletes and teams like Shaquille O’Neal, Gabby Reece, Keyshawn Johnson, Joe Namath and the SF 49ers, and managed marketing communications programs for brands like adidas, Doritos, Mazda, Columbia TriStar Home Video, Mirage Resorts and others.
“Great coaches help you build the skills, resilience, and self-awareness to make better, more confident decisions for the rest of your life. That’s what Todd did for me, and more than a decade later, I’m grateful every day for the lasting impact he’s had — and continues to have — on my life.”Leonard Markidan, Former Employee
I speak on college campuses and and am the founder and curator of A Day Well Lived – a daily initiative about the importance of mental health. I’m deep into the millionth draft of my second book, DINNER AT GOD’S HOUSE. I live in Mill Valley, CA, with my wife, an expert in crypto art and NFTs, 16-year-old son, a hip-hop producer, and 5-year-old Australian Shepherd.
