Tod Steven Abrams
August 20, 1963 – August 30, 2015
Tod was born in Philadelphia, PA, a graduate of Upper Merion High School in King of Prussia, PA, with a Bachelors Degree in Business from George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
After a career in Real Estate in NYC, Tod moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of working in Television and Film Marketing. He began his career at 20th Century Fox Films, and with hard work and charm, he rapidly ascended to senior executive positions at New Line Cinema and FineLineFeatures. In 1999, Tod founded his own company, Alternative Marketing Solutions. Tod was inspired to create niche marketing campaigns for Home Entertainment, specializing in advertising, promotion, and media. His clients included Hollywood’s biggest studios like 20th Century Fox, Universal, and Paramount. Tod also produced several independent film projects including The Mostly Unfabulous Life of Ethan Green. He also penned a highly successful blog, The Reluctant Daddy, inspired by his own humorous insights into the perils of parenting.
Always on the cutting edge of the next trend, Tod was an avid world traveler and social activist/philanthropist. Tod was passionate about Modernist Architecture & Design, he was active in the Art Museum of Palm Springs, The LA Museum of Natural History, and he founded the Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts inspired by the birth of his son Ethan.
Tod will be remembered for his keen intelligence whip-smart honest wit, and innate ability to bring life, energy and sophisticated glamour to anything in his path. He will be greatly missed by those he left behind, including his husband, George Bamber-Abrams; his son, Ethan Abrams; his parents, Michael and Loretta Abrams; his sisters, Eden and Jill Abrams, and countless individuals who were honored to call him their friend.
Funeral Service will be held on Sunday September 6, 2015 at 1 pm EST at Riverside-Stanetsky Memorial Chapels 7205 W. Atlantic Avenue Delray Beach, FL 33446 (561.496.7550
