Todd Noon has been writing about food and drink for several years, having been a freelance writer for the late Ed Hitzel’s Restaurant Magazine and for Flavor Magazine—a publication of the Press of Atlantic City. He is also a nationally published author who has spoken across the country on a variety of economic development topics.
Prior to his current career as a professional grant writer, Todd led three lives. In his first life, he served as Chief of Staff and Press Secretary for a New Jersey State Senator, Interim Chief of Staff for an Assemblyman and a Legislative Aide for a US Congressman, where he handled matters related to defense, foreign affairs, national security and the environment. Todd’s second life took place in the private sector, where he worked in sales and program development for two major southern NJ tourist destinations. In his third life, he served as an executive director for a Downtown Improvement District.
Todd, a husband and father to two daughters, attended West Virginia University and graduated from Stockton State College (now Stockton University) with a degree in Political Science. He is a writer at heart and is currently working on a biography, a musical, several short stories, and an inspirational book about overcoming fear based on his recent mission trip to Haiti.
