Todd grew up in Sandy, Utah, as the youngest of four children.  His father was an auto mechanic and his mother worked as a secretary while they raised their family.  Todd worked through college, also as a mechanic as well as auto body and paint.  He graduated Cum Laude from the University of Utah with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1988.  Following graduation, he entered the semiconductor industry and worked for National/Fairchild Semiconductor in Utah as a Process Engineer and Engineering Manager. While with National/Fairchild he completed two work assignment; one for 7-months in Israel helping a factory ramp for production, followed by a 2-year assignment in Austin Texas with a semiconductor consortium (Sematech) in a research & development role.

He then decided to change companies, wanted to stay in the Rocky Mountain area, and while looking for opportunities, fell in love with Idaho and Pocatello.  He moved to Pocatello in 1995 to work for AMI Semiconductor, later ON Semiconductor, for the startup of their 8” integrated circuit & semiconductor fabrication facility.  He worked as a Process Engineer, Director of Engineering, and eventually was promoted to Director of Operations and Site General Manager.  While Site Manager he worked closely with corporate, his staff, and local & state officials to expand the Pocatello manufacturing base by 5X.  He also served on the board of directors for the United Way of South East Idaho and is an active member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

At the age of 54, he retired from the semiconductor industry in 2018 after 30 years.  He spent 6 years enjoying time with family & friends, studying economics, and getting more heavily involved with politics.  He became an active member of the Libertarian Party of Idaho (LPID), where he holds positions as chair of region 3 and chair of the Public Relations Committee.  He was the first elected Libertarian in Idaho obtaining the office of Precinct Committeeman.  He is chair of the Bannock County Central Committee and Legislative District 28 Central Committee, and is a voting member of the LPID Idaho State Central Committee.

Todd is married to his beautiful wife and native Idahoan, Amber Corsetti. Together, they have 5 wonderful children, 12 awesome grandchildren, and they plan to continue to live in Pocatello unless the Yellowstone caldera goes off.  If that doesn’t happen, they will continue to love backcountry skiing, hunting, fishing, rafting, golfing, biking, motorcycles, hiking, playing music, rafting, backpacking, goat packing, camping and generally loving life with family and friends.
