Todd was born in Niskayuna, NY. He graduated from Mohonasen High School and would later enlist in the US Army where he served his country for 20 years.  While in the Army, Todd worked in Vehicle Maintenance during the Gulf War era along with being stationed in Kuwait and Somalia among other deployments.
