Todd is a Designer and Art Director based in Vancouver, BC. He’s lucky to have spent 13 years at some of Canada’s top design and advertising agencies before striking out on his own. In 2018, Todd co-founded Happy Time VI, a boutique studio servicing small and large clients like Telus, Lululemon and more.

As a multidisciplinary creative Todd works fluidly between creating brands, digital experiences, social content and 360° advertising campaigns. His work has been recognized nationally and internationally by the One Show, the Webby Awards, Communication Arts, Booooooom, Rental Magazine and others.
