Todd dedicated his career to gaining and applying experiential research to gain empathy and understanding of the needs of individuals with physical and emotional challenges. But living a life as a competitive distance runner, kayaker, skier, and backpacker, what did he really understand? Now living with a degenerative neuromuscular disease that leaves him unable to walk or speak, he passionately shares his insights and experiences to better our communities and society as a whole. Todd practices architecture as a principal at JSA Design in Portsmouth.
