Fred has been a teacher (college biology), physical therapist (now retired), photographer (since 1970), blogger (at Fragments from Floyd since 2002) and life-long learner. He is author of two books (at Fragments/Stuff) and hundreds of wide-ranging newspaper columns and NPR radio essays (WVTF) since 2004. He is on the board of directors of SustainFloyd in Floyd County, VA, and a past member of the Society of Environmental Journalists. His work derives form (as of June 2020) from a windy expanse in Floyd County, Virginia.
