Fredrick Burns was born in Jackson, MS and is a graduate of an HBCU Thee Jackson State University where he received a degree in Computer Engineering (B.S). Fredrick (who prefers to be called Fred) considers himself an artist instead of a technologist. Although he has an extensive background in Software Development, Fred prides himself on his ability to see technical before they happen. Fred decided to create the CultureSnap App once he realized that African Americans only had hashtags to represent the attributes of their culture via social media. He calls it - the evolution of the hashtag. His vision is for the CultureSnap app to be used to display Black Excellence and the visual representation of the Culture. Fred is the Father of Twin boys Mason & McKenzie. Fred has written multiple technical grants as a part of his efforts to give back to his community and expose blacks to coding.
