Literary Manager. Director. Illustrator. Sometimes Playwright.
Todd is the Literary Manager of Portland Stage. He is also a director, dramaturg, illustrator, and occasional playwright. This past year in Portland he directed a workshop of Bess Welden's Refuge/Malja, Callie Kimball's Things That Are Round, and Eleanor Burgess' The Cave in a new workshop series, as well as a dark week production of Dear Elizabeth by Sarah Ruhl, and an excerpt of Birdstrike by Xavier Villanova as part of Portland Stage's 21st Annual From Away festival. He is one of the founding members of PowerOut, and is often found book-in-hand reading for an upcoming project.
Inspired by Sarah Ruhl, Moises Kaufman, and more, Todd seeks to create experiences that can only be found in the theatre. Todd aims to connect with a diverse array of writers, and performers in order to better reflect the beautiful, messy, and complicated picture of our increasingly interconnected lives.
Todd is diving back into his research to pen the rest of his Emily Dickinson: Paranormal Investigator trilogy.
