About Todd

Todd Boss is an Emmy-winning, Grammy-nominated American author, producer, and entrepreneur whose practice includes product innovation, film, installation art, and multimedia projects.

His four poetry collections are published by W. W. Norton & Co. (2008-2022). His first children’s book, The Boy Who Said Wow, is due from Simon & Schuster (2023). His poems have appeared in The New Yorker, Poetry, National Public Radio, The London Times, American Poetry Review, Best American Poetry, and various anthologies. He is producer and host of the podcast “There’s a Poem in That.”

Todd’s lyrics have been performed at Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, and around the world. He’s written everything from art song to choral symphony, most notably with composer Jake Runestad and soprano Sasha Cooke. 

His films have been presented in Cannes, London, New York, Los Angeles and elsewhere. His projects have been featured in Forbes, The New Yorker, The Boston Globe, Variety, and dozens of other outlets.

His public artworks include major permanent and temporary river installations, building projections, and VR/AR projects.

Todd is the inventor of the patented Laptop Strap family of business accessories, and directs operations for his cousin’s launch of patent-pending sporting goods Limber Bows.

Impact is at the heart of Todd’s practice. His nonprofit and for-profit ventures, and most of his less structured projects, skew toward collaborations with women and people of color, or involve tangible charitable give-back for refugee relief work, childhood literacy, disadvantaged youth travel abroad programs, or the work of the ACLU.

In 2018, Todd sold nearly all his possessions. As a two-suitcase nomad with no permanent address, he has since circled the globe on a series of 30+ consecutive house-sits.
