Fred’s 30-plus year career in archaeology has been built in both the public and private sectors beginning with his time at the Institute for Conservation Archaeology at the Peabody Museum at Harvard University. He then served as a field director and project manager at the Arizona State Museum and the Institute for American Research. After a hiatus of 14 years, during which time he ran his own small business, he returned to archaeology and successfully built cultural resources departments in two private companies. He has combined his business and cultural resources experience to successfully manage large archaeological projects in Arizona and New Mexico. Fred is an expert in Section 106 consultation and has assisted numerous Federal agencies in meeting their Section 106 obligations. Fred joined Westland in 2010 and, in his present role, is tasked with developing long-range strategies for the cultural resources division to assist in the planned growth of the company.
Fred earned a BA in Anthropology from University of Massachusetts.
