Originally from Memphis, TN; Todd took the opportunity to escape and made the move to Chattanooga in 2003. He left a thriving seasonal Haunted Attraction and commuted for a couple years running that event in Memphis until he gave it up to run the first Spirit Halloween Store in Chattanooga (Hixson area). Ruby Falls approached him about the opportunity to take over their Haunted Caverns in 2007. His business partner Tim Green and their team of Fear Connection Necrotechs continue to manage, design, build one of the Nation’s top rated Haunted Attractions and they also manage the Exhibitor Hall for Con Nooga.
Meanwhile back in time Todd Joined Chattooine in 2004 where he met and became friends with Jeff Hickey. Todd took over the role of Public Relations in 2005 where Jeff and Todd began promoting and building a larger Fan Force. Disappointed with some convention experiences and the desire to bring a FAMILY friendly convention to Chattanooga that covered all the FANDOMS; In 2007 Con Nooga was born on a Google Search Engine. The concept was simple. “We wanted a Convention that had all the elements and events that we liked attending when we went to conventions”. Several of the original founders gave up on Con Nooga; but Jeff and Todd believed in the dream and had the desire and passion to bring Chattanooga an event that they felt encompassed all of the elements that made a great convention. Todd is already planning another 28,000 square foot expansion for 2015 and is looking at other opportunities as he hopes to hear from the fans as to what they want Con Nooga to bring as part of future events.
Todd is recently divorced and has (2) kids Kasey – 16 and Matt – 18. He also has two other kids - dogs that have also attended Con Nooga every year: Buttons and Dandy. Todd is a member of the Mos Nooga Squad – 501st (BH6963); Chattooine Member, serves as the Con Chairman for Con Nooga and the newly formed TattooNooga and has been a guest speaker at numerous conventions covering Fandom, Haunted Attractions, and even Charities
