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 Julia Doolittle’s The Absentee in the 29th Little Festival of the Unexpected; Steven Strafford’s Small Jokes About Monsters and Bess Welden's Refuge/Malja in the Studio Series Workshops; and a dark week production of Dear Elizabeth by Sarah Ruhl. 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 hard at work penning Emily Dickinson and the President’s Box, the sequel to his popular Emily Dickinson: Paranormal Investigator.
