A native of Connecticut, I have been working with clients to achieve their personal hair goals for over 25 years. My passion for people and the craft led me to become an industry educator, representing various brands and traveling around the US and abroad. Sharing color theory and technique with fellow artists in salons and at trade shows has been a rewarding part of my career.
I also co-owned and operated Aqua Salon & Spa for over a decade until selling in 2019. The plan to settle in Arizona came just as the pandemic hit and changed the narrative. I miss my family, friends, and clients back east but am excited for a new adventure here in Arizona.
I believe "setting up shop" at The Beauty District - Norterra will be the perfect place to allow Altered Carbon to thrive and me to establish new client relationships.

Hannah B - July 5, 2020
Altered Carbon is the perfect venue to get your hair styled during this challenging pandemic. Todd maintains meticulous sanitizing standards. I felt very comfortable throughout my appointment. I have short hair and was looking for an updated hairstyle and color. Todd spent time reviewing the photos I brought with me and took time asking questions and had very good suggestions. Todd is very professional, he gave me a wonderful cut and color. On top of his skill, I appreciate that he is so considerate and careful. He knows how important hair is, and he checks with you along the way to ensure you're happy with the length. I love my new updated haircut and color. I highly recommend Todd.
Claudia S - June 24, 2020
Being a former stylist, it isn't easy going to someone new. That being said I couldn't be happier with the results! Todd has amazing interview skills to understand your expectations. He was welcoming, precise and educational throughout the entire process and listened to what I was saying. He was able to work from pictures I showed him and created exactly what I wanted His Studio was clean and welcoming. I have already recommended him to several people who have asked about my hair. Thank you Todd.
Todd gave the best haircut I have ever had. Seriouslv! It's been almost 4 weeks since mv cut and mv hair is still looking good. Todd is exacting and gave me a scissor cut that did not cost much more than a typical clipper cut from a local barber. The salon is comfortable and private. Todd followed proper protocols to alleviate an concerns in this time of Covid.
