Background and Accomplishments

As Assistant Director, Fred directly counsels client companies on all aspects of their business needs. His work also includes oversight of the Fisher Innovation Launchpad and is working on creating similar programs across the southeast and eastern sides of the state. Additionally, because the arts sector drives the culture of innovation and creativity that fuels tech sectors, Fred works with visual and performing artist clients in our arts incubation program.

Trained as a sculptor and graphic designer, Fred joined the WTBC in the Fall of 2010. Prior to joining the WTBC, he spent several years involved in all aspects of the small-run printing industry including design and project management. Having designed everything from the usual printing needs, to large projects such as a food truck or the digital and printing needs of an entire conference, Fred enjoys meeting challenging needs.

Fred's artistic pedigree includes having work shown in the National Wildlife Museum and studying under famed graphic designer David Carson. With his background in sculpture, specifically in cast metals, Fred possesses the ability to look at problems from multiple angles and assist in coming up with creative, and effective, solutions.

Fred currently serves on the board of directors for the Wyoming Humanities Council and TechTalk Laramie, a Laramie based technology workers oriented 501(c)3 he helped to co-found in 2017. He is a 2019 graduate of Leadership Wyoming.
