Todd assists with media relations at Denver Water. Prior to joining the Denver Water team, Todd led communications for the Colorado Department of Natural Resources and its six divisions, explaining the agency’s work on water policy, its regulation of oil, gas, mining, state lands and its management of parks and wildlife under Governor Hickenlooper. He also conducted media relations work for the Governor’s Energy Office during Governor Ritter’s tenure. Prior to 2009, Todd enjoyed a career in daily print journalism at four newspapers — including the late Rocky Mountain News — much of that time specializing in environment and energy coverage. Todd received a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of Colorado, and later spent an academic fellowship year studying environmental issues, also at CU. He spends his free hours as a news junkie, backpacker and martini lover. He enjoys the latter with his wife Sherry, usually on the back patio of their home in Welby, where they live with an undisclosed number of cats.
