Hi, I'm Fred.

I'm the co-founder and CEO of Tortuga. We make carry-on-sized travel backpacks.

I'm passionate about travel, remote work, and location independence. I'm originally from New Castle, Pennsylvania but have lived in the Bay Area since 2007.

Before starting Tortuga, I worked at Google then as a freelance performance marketer for startups like Airbnb, Lyft, and Udemy.
