Todd’s vast industry experience started while he was in high school in DE. He went and graduated from an electrical trades specialty school and high school. While attending this school he worked as an electrician’s apprentice performing residential, commercial, and industrial wiring installations and troubleshooting.
During his military service serving on-board the aircraft carrier USS MIdway Todd gained expertise in HVAC and refrigeration systems. He later added plumbing trades to his experience; as HVAC was typically combined with plumbing within the companies that he worked for.
During his time abroad in Japan, Todd gained key insight into the manufacturing world with regard to quality control, inspection, and auditing of high tech electronics in the computer and aircraft industries. He later brought this experience back to the U.S. where he became the Quality Manager of a roof tile manufacturer.
In early 1999, Todd decided to become a home inspector. He attended the country’s highest rated inspection school, Inspection Training Associates in Oceanside, CA, and became certified as a home inspector.
Todd has first-hand construction experience with everything from framing, insulation and drywall to wiring, plumbing and HVAC. He has completed several home remodels as well as full kitchen and bathroom remodels over the years, including hardwood and tile floor installations. He has also built fences, decks and installed sump pump systems and exterior sub surface drain systems.
All this valuable experience is what makes Todd the best inspector in the industry... he doesn't miss a thing!
Todd also volunteers his time and expertise helping fellow veterans in need of his talents in connection with local VFW's.
