In response to the worldwide refugee crisis, Todd conceived and supported the launch of All of Us Travel, a short-lived travel goods brand that donated 10% of sales to the refugee relief programs of the International Rescue Committee, with celebrity endorsement from Travel Channel chef Andrew Zimmern. All of Us launched with 50 branded products, selling direct to consumer and on Amazon, resulting in $50,000 to the IRC.
Todd continues to carry All of Us brand luggage since becoming a nomad in 2018.
"Collaboration is the love language of entrepreneurship. Working with Todd to co-create All Of Us was fun, meaningful, and continues to be inspirational for me." Andrew Zimmern, celebrity chef

Todd is grateful to Andrew Gamson and the team at Cities Market Studios, John Larson and the Andrew Zimmern team, and his partners at the International Rescue Committee.
Engagement with this project led Todd to found his own business accessories company, Free Agent Outfitters, just two years later.
It's not okay that so many of us are refugees in this day and age, homeless or seeking asylum. Creating this brand was a thrill. I'll never forget walking into a bar in Minneapolis and introducing this project's future collaborators. But working with the talented, brave, invested, and pioneering world-class experts at the IRC was a true honor. I wish we could have done more for them. Heroes.
