Fred has presented at numerous early childhood conferences across Canada. His keynote addresses are inspiring and entertaining. He grew up in Winnipeg and through his work in child care centres (Knowles School for Boys, Childrens Home of Winnipeg) Fred gained a deep personal awareness of the emotional, behavioral and physical challenges these children faced. From the small screen to the live stage; from writing songs to composing scores; this seasoned performer’s ability to blend his considerable talents has garnered critical acclaim and a host of awards. Like the precious ingredients in your favourite feel good soup, his combination of warmth, ease, enthusiasm and grace bring nourishment too often lacking in these turbulent times.
