The company visionary, Todd spends most of his time in the future planning the long-term direction of the company. As keeper of the company culture, Todd assures that our core beliefs remain at the forefront. Todd also locates the land for our neighborhoods – a process that can often take five years or more. On the weekends, you may see Todd performing as a drummer with his band at local events.
