Senior Associate | Architecture
Originally from the northwest corner of Minnesota, Todd grew up in a farm environment with the great outdoors as his playground. He would build forts and tree houses, and later discovered the connection between his love of building forts and drawing floor plans.
At the University of Minnesota, Todd explored architecture, cultural studies, and comparative literature, which prepared him well for graduate school and a Master of Architecture degree from Iowa State University. While studying, he was exposed to new challenges and design influences, and developed his personal motto: “Never stop learning.”
Following grad school and the challenge of finding his first job, a posting for employment in Seattle caught his eye, and called him to the Pacific Northwest. He spent four years at GGLO, contributing to large multifamily projects, and working toward licensure. He loves the change of pace of working on small projects at Board & Vellum, and especially enjoys building relationships with great residential clients.
In his spare time, Todd enjoys photography, biking, hiking, all day game-a-thons, kimchi-making with friends, or relaxing and enjoying the wonderful wine/cider/beer this region has to offer.
