JJ Todd
Legal Counsel, Downtown Project

What is something about you that most people don’t know?
For the past four years, I have rented a different car every day. It's a long story, so buy me a beer and I'll explain the reason for this ridiculous habit.

What was your favorite subject in school?
Geography and history.

If you won $100 million, what would you buy first?
A Boeing 747.

If you had to choose just one place to vacation every year for the rest of your life, where would it be?
Spring in Barcelona. Autumn in Hoi An, Vietnam.

If someone were to make a movie about your life, who would you hope would play you?
Chris Hemsworth. He's tall and my wife would be perfectly happy.

What are some of the different jobs that you have had in your life?
Semi-pro basketball player, burrito shop manager, substitute teacher, and lawyer.

What was the last great book you read?
Inferno by Dan Brown.

What was the last great concert you attended?
Dave Matthews Band. I've seen them more than 20 times.

Do you have a favorite quote or saying that inspires you?
There's too much traffic on the road less traveled. I'll pave a road all to myself instead. 

What’s your favorite downtown venue?
The Hydrant Club, because it is the happy place for my dogs Dublin and Berlin.
