Biography Edit

the boys

They say Fred was born on a cool Kansas evening in the summer of '73, the first-born son of Richard and Leslie Siegmund, but the evidence has been lost. All that we know for certain is that a person known as Fred has attended many schools and lived in many cities and slept on many couches and sat on numerous porches and attended many concerts and listened to many albums and read many books and written many papers and ran many miles and walked many roads and watched endless hours of TV, and, after many strange twists and turns, he acquired a BA in English from little (yet spunky) UT Tyler, a MA fromThe University of Oklahoma and is now working on his PhD.

He is luckily married to the most elegant, intelligent, and amazing woman, Bridgett, and he has two wonderful sons: Garrett (8) and Liam (7 weeks).
