Originally from Houston, Texas, Todd grew tired of the incessant heat and relocated to the Pacific Northwest. Seattle didn’t have enough precipitation so he moved to Juneau, which he’s called home since 2013. He has been involved in web and graphic design on many different levels over the past fifteen years. Todd volunteers at KXLL 100.7FM on Tuesday nights hosting Alaskan Scorcher, a radio show focusing on ’60s and early-’70s Ska, Rocksteady, Garage Psych, Soul and more.
