Having spent time as a competitive bodybuilder, triathlete, adventure racer, survivalist, combat veteran special operations operator, hostage rescue assault commander, corporate security analyst, and director of operations for a technology company, Todd knows the ingredients to success and what is required to establish harmony with oneself and any work environment.


Todd has taken his personal, military special operations, and real-world business experience and translated them into a program you can immediately apply.


Todd believes that in order to have harmony in life, one must first master creating positive relationships.  Healthy relationships with oneself, surroundings, and most importantly, with others.  He has seen what works and what hasn’t…. on the battlefield and in the trenches of Silicon Valley. His passion is to share with you what he has learned so you can optimize your life and always be prepared for battle.
