Having started his career as a busboy in a Croatian restaurant at the age of 13, Toddy Stewart would subsequently add reams of work experience to his resume with noted turns as a janitor, house painter, lab assistant, barista, art hanger, bartender, grocery store cashier, waiter, lighting grip, substitute teacher, receptionist, graduate student, real estate agent, television cameraman, floor director, artist's assistant and janitor again before settling on an extended stint as a broadcast commercial editor.
He is now a kind of creative monkey wrench.
His work has garnered an Emmy, a Clio, a PDN Award, two Connections Gold Medals, a handful of Vimeo Staff Picks and has been honored at the Webby Awards and the La Jolla International Fashion Film Festival, the Canadian Surf Film Festival
and the London Surf Film Festival. He once came in second place in an amateur surfing competition, was a teammate on multiple New York City amateur soccer league champion teams, has officiated two weddings and regularly walks his dog. He reads travelogues without proper discipline, tweets his dreams and hopes to someday spend a large amount of his time plein air painting and writing about failure.
