Fred Block

While growing up and apprenticing at his parent's graphic design studio, Fred learned the value of mentoring from a variety of talented artists and designers. Later, while earning his pilot certificates and BS in Aeronautical Science at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the lesson was reinforced when he was mentored by a wide range of aviation experts and instructors. Now, Fred enjoys his chance to be a mentor - and his goal with HFP is to share his passions for aviation and creative pursuits, and to inspire kids to find and cultivate their own. Working with Google for Non-Profits, Fred helped set up HFP's IT infrastructure and web site. In addition, he is working with the kids to develop new videos for HFP, along with a HFP youtube channel.
