Musical History: Todd grew up in an environment where music was appreciated and pursued. Whether it was church hymns, his mother singing around the house, or his sisters plunking away on the piano, there was plenty of music all around. While Todd enjoyed music from an early age, he was a late bloomer when it came to developing his own talents. Todd was twenty years old when he gave his first (albeit short) public church, of course! Many years of choir, ensembles, and solos continued to develop his vocal talent and solidify his calling. In 1999 Todd began a three-year journey with Faithful Men Quartet, which provided numerous opportunities to minister in new ways. God called the members of FMQ in separate directions in 2003, and Todd continues to use his musical talents in solo ministry.

Musical Accomplishments: Along the road of experience, some great things have happened. Here are some highlights: Regional Semifinalist in the solo division of the 2003 national Chrisitian Artist Talent Search; Top 40 solo finalist in the 2002 Do Good Music national Talent contest; Regional Winner and National Semifinalist with Faithful Men Quartet in the 2002 national Christian Artist Talent Search; Top 100 finalist with Faithful Men Quartet in the 2001 Do Good Music national Talent Contest

Favorite Musical Artists: 4 Him, Bryan Duncan, Russ Lee, and the Gaither Vocal Band

Testimony: Todd grew up in a solid Christian home, and was introduced to the message of salvation early in his life. At five years of age Todd gave his life to God, asking Jesus to be his Savior. God provided solid Christian friends for Todd during his youth, and those friendships were instrumental in helping him avoid many of the struggles faced during growing years. He rededicated his life on a high school youth trip, and shortly thereafter began developing his vocal talent.
