Todd got his start in the booze business as a bartender. His passion and talent for cocktail design made him a bit of a celebrity in the early-days of mixologist (somewhere there is even video of him making drinks on CNN). From there he decided that he wanted to explore the business side of the industry and starting selling fine wines & spirits in Beverly Hills for a large distributor. After several years of this he realized that his real passion was marketing and moved to New York to work for a vodka company (gasp!). After spending many years in marketing for some of the largest spirits brands in US (and a few years in an inferior industry) he was lured to the farm. After learning about our award-winning products and the immense passion of the brands advocates he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to help tell WhistlePigs tales.
Born and raised in California, Todd is a self-proclaimed band geek and has passion for great design, politics, and classical music. Oh, and he was once a contestant on a tv game show (he won of course – we only hire winners).
