Todd Benton is a website and graphic designer who also advises on social media and relationship marketing. His tagline is “creating authentic connections online and offline” and in keeping with that, he’s also trying to change what it means to be a man in today’s hyper-competitive, male-dominated culture. He does this though his work with the Inner Revolutionary Men’s group – a program of the InnerRevolution.Org – and as a father to two young boys. Todd wasn’t always like this, however. He spent most of his first 50 years organized around self-serving platitudes and focused on being important and impressive, which led him to ignore almost everything that didn’t seem to fit that picture. Todd is now working to be a different kind of man and father: one that helps others to be emotionally intelligent, honest and available. Todd lives in San Diego with his wife, Christine and his sons, aged 9 and 12.
