Hi, I'm Fred. If you didn't know already, I'm a dork.
I work for the LPGA as a network engineer IT Operations Director - which means I'm responsible for fixing and/or maintaining anything
that runs on electricity. It's a lot of work, but like anything else it has its moments. It's a pretty relaxed atmosphere, and the
people make the job worthwhile.
I used to get to travel with the tour, but with the economy the way it is these day, my travel budget disappeared faster than snow in June so now the farthest I travel is
to International Speedway Blvd for lunch.
I live in Daytona Beach with my wife Amanda and son Eric, right across the street from my office, actually. We built our first house together back in 2008 and
it seems that the process of making it "ours" is never-ending. We also have two dogs and two cats. Both of our
immediate families live nearby in the Volusia county area.
In my free time, I enjoy woodworking (or woodbutchering as some would say is a more appropriate description of what I do), reading up on the latest technology, hunting, camping, and watching Star Trek.
I'm also a big fan of Tom Clancy and Michael Crichton novels. I also love "Family Guy" and "House". Some of my favorite actors are Dan Akroyd, John Candy (RIP), Adam Sandler and Kevin James.
I have mostly conservative political views, and at times, have a bit of a "survivalist" streak. If you asked me for a conversation starter
I might tell you the world would be a better place with more guns and less lawyers.
