Todd is like everyone else.
As a child, he had a dream. A dream to be a Russian figure
skater. But unfortunately for Todd, he was not Russian and
he could not skate. So like most people, his dream was shattered
and he had to go get a job like everybody else. So Todd went
to college, University of Florida to be exact, to be an accountant.
But after 6 years of crunching numbers, he realized accounting
was not for him. So he quit, and ventured into the world trying
to find himself. Over the next few years, he jumped from job
to job, but nothing seemed to stick. I guess you can say he
hadn't found himself. So Todd decided to take a chance, and
do what he did best: make fun of the world through his stupid
doodles. The same doodles he has been drawing in school as
So Todd started doodling. Finally after 6 months, Todd had
enough designs to start his new business idea. A t-shirt company
based on his doodles. So Todd borrowed some money from his
parents and started david & goliath. Where did he get
the name david & goliath you ask? Well, it's too long
to tell you. Anyway, that was January of 2000. Today, david
& goliath has over 5000 designs and manufactures hundreds
of different products. From pajamas to plush, if it's funny
and stupid, they'll make it. Todd likes to make up characters
and give each of them their own personalities. From Trendy
Wendy to Dumb Blonde to Bonita Styles to Bear in Underwear,
each one has something to say. To date, there are probably
about 100 characters that live in Todd's "Stupid Factory",
and it's still growing. david & goliath ships stores all
over the world as well as their own freestanding "Stupid
Nowadays besides the typical david & goliath products,
Todd's doodles have made there way onto many other things.
Like greeting cards, books, lithographs and original paintings

Rocks At Them" was a huge success, despite all the controversy.
Controversy that got him write-ups in Time, The Wall Street
Journal and People Magazine. Todd was even named #97 in the
book "100 People Screwing Up America". He hopes
to be ranked higher next year. Todd has several more books

world. His paintings and lithographs are shown in many galleries
around the globe and he has at least 10 art shows a year.

Todd is now working on an animated cartoon series for television
and even has his own column in Seventeen magazine called "Stupid
Stuff by Todd". Todd has one simple philosophy. Make
people laugh! Whether they're laughing at him or with him,
he doesn't care, just as long as they're laughing.
Todd is single and lives in Los Angeles. Day to day Todd continues
to write new books, paint and come up more stupid products
