Frederick Hayes was raised in Detroit, Michigan, and moved to California in 1994. Fred’s father introduced him to the sport of golf at a very young age. During his early teenage years, Fred worked as a caddy at the Oakland Hills Country Club, located in Birmingham, Michigan. Fred is a Detroit Tiger baseball team fan, and he was privileged to play an eighteen-hole round of golf with the legendary Al Kaline (former Detroit Tiger baseball team member) during Caddy/Member Day at Oakland Hills Country Club. In 2008 Fred obtained his A.S. degree in Business Management and is currently enrolled in a Literary Braille Transcribing Course offered by the National Federation of the Blind. Fred is an avid reader. After receiving a book gift entitled “Screenplay the Foundations of Screenwriting,” by Syd Field, Fred is presently working toward completing his first original screenplay. Fred strives to “give back” to society via the routes available to him and intends to continue to do so throughout his life. Fred’s speech is about the necessity to expand transitional housing for those who “age-out” of the Foster Care/Group Home System.
At the TEDx event at Ironwood State Prison, Mr Hayes talks about transitions:
Human life is too precious and too intertwined to leave it's outcome to just chance.
