Todd is a “born and raised” Sarnian with time away from the city during Military and OPP service.

Todd has been sharpening skates for ten years. he brings quite a varied background of life experiences to PIAS. His activities and sports experience along with great leadership qualities, which developed over his years of military and policing service, are an asset here at our store. With time spent in team triathlons, individual duathlons, 5k to marathon distances, Todd has participated in races up north on St Joseph’s island, down south in Alabama and as far west as St Louis Missouri. The original MADD racing team in Southwestern Ontario was formed by Todd and his racing buddy a long time friend since high school.

If Todd has a particular passion, it would be his love of back country camping and hiking. From the Arctic Circle in north Norway, to the back country of the Yukon right down to local woodlots, Todd has seen plenty of time under the stars. It’s that outdoor love that created an interest in sharpening his survival and day to day working knives. His expertise in working with his own personal steel has translated into skate sharpening here at Play it Again Sports. Todd’s love of that “edge” and his attention to detail works well with the demands of today’s skaters and the level of sharpening expected by our owners.

Todd’s years of scuba diving and general fitness participation make him an excellent part of the Play it Again Sports dive family.
Todd has been a part of that family personally and professionally since 2006 and we look forward to quite a few more years together.
