Hailing from downstate Illinois but having spent most of his life in Chicagoland, Fred is just as at home walking along Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago as he is exploring the cornfield-dotted countryside. However, his favorite place to spend his time is behind the wheel. Having spent quite a bit of time supporting General Motors, he’s been hooked on GM cars and trucks ever since the very first time he drove a Corvette. Fred is currently trying to convince his wife they need to trade in their family car for a Camaro – unfortunately for him, she’s not buying it. When not driving, talking or thinking about cars, Fred spends his time with his growing family and working on his MBA.
