Fred is an author, blogger, award-winning digital marketer, media commentator, mentor and active member of the startup community. He is the Co-founder of Finder – Australia's leading comparison website and one of the biggest in the world – which receives more than 10 million visits each month globally.

He graduated from Macquarie University with a Bachelor of Finance, and at the age of 22 while still studying, he co-created Freestyle Media and grew the business into a successful digital agency that sold to a publicly-listed company in 2007.

At just 26 years of age, Fred entered the comparison market, one of the most highly competitive online categories in Australia. Following its success in Australia, Fred and his business partner, Frank Restuccia, and their 70+ crew, launched finder.com in the US in July 2015

He is a contributor to news.com.au, Yahoo Finance and Fairfax Media. He also regularly appears on TV and radio sharing his experience as an entrepreneur. Fred helps both undergraduate and postgraduate students develop business concepts and is also a Startup Australia Ambassador and St. George Bank Ambassador.
