Marcus Todd

Kitchen Manager

Chef Marcus Todd is our Kitchen Manager, starting in 2015. He and his wife Laura have been members of First Church for five years. When they discovered their first child was on her way, they started seeking a church for their family. They lived near Joy Gorian, and she invited them to try First Church. When they arrived, they felt at home, and they’ve have been here ever since.

Chef Marcus grew up in Sonoma, CA, and attended the Walt Disney Culinary School in Orlando, Florida. After working at Disney’s best restaurant, Victoria and Albert’s, for two years, he got his Bachelor’s degree and returned home to California.

When it comes to food, Chef Marcus loves eggs and everything else. Because his wife and two children, Rachel and Alexander are vegan, he’s an experienced vegan chef. He looks forward to working with a variety of groups to create fantastic food-oriented events.
