Originally from New Jersey, he came to his community as a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity in 1995 and never left. As a musician, his work as a bass clarinetist and composer includes leading ensembles of 2-10 musicians and often incorporates Middle Eastern influences from his Egyptian heritage. Todd has performed at Creative Alliance many times, bringing lush and intricate original compositions as well as powerful collaborations to the stage.
