“Hi there! My name is Todd, and I’m the founder of the Truly Free School.  I believe that kids learn best when they are free to pursue their own individual interests, and I’m committed to fostering an environment where this vision can be a reality.”

In addition to homeschooling his four kids alongside his wife, Erin, Todd has taught music, sports, math, writing, and many other subjects to students of all ages, including ten years as an associate professor instructing on-ground and online classes at the University of Advancing Technology.  While getting his Master of Music Degree in Interdisciplinary Digital Media and Performance at Arizona State University, part of the vibrant Arts, Media, and Engineering program, Todd was privileged to see firsthand the energy that comes from collaboratively pursuing innovative projects that are unconstrained by traditional disciplinary boundaries.  His portfolio website, innovatoreducator.com, documents his professional work in curriculum design, new media art, music, and teaching.  Todd  is a deacon at his local church, and believes that the love of Jesus will make you truly free.
