About

Terrence Fradet grew up in western Massachusetts, attending private schools rooted in the arts. He studied graphic design at Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA; however, he was more likely found developing his craftsmanship in the fine arts and industrial design buildings. As a result of taking research-driven design classes he discovered the importance of visualizing data. Terrence enjoys making information accessible as a byproduct of his visual process to learning. After replanting his life in Boston to join Fathom, he is relieved to begin skiing, mountain biking, and rock climbing again.
