Todd fell in love with words at a young age, banging out superhero stories and recaps of his beloved Dallas Cowboys' latest game on an old Royal typewriter he found one day in the basement. Over his 25-year career, he's most notably scripted hundreds of hours of television (HGTV, DIY Network, PBS, Weather Channel), authored a handful of books in the popular "...For Dummies" series, and served as a correspondent for the leading food website Serious Eats.
Like any freelancer, he's also amassed an extensive collection of miscellaneous writing gigs along the way: copywriting for oatmeal and baked beans, story creation for internal pharmaceutical presentations, how-to articles for the construction trade, marketing materials for virtual home tours, and one-off projects tackling everything from mobsters to Spartan racing to Pac-Man.
In his spare time, he's still in the basement, banging out stories about his team. But now it's for Cowboys Wire, part of the USA Today Sports Media Group family of websites.
