Fred Mallett has been competing in Masters level sand sculpture events since 2002. As of the end of 2013, he has competed in 74 masters level competitions and placed at 37 of them.
Notable placings include Second place in the 2010 world championship teams, World hand stack and architecture medals, and National soft sand championship as well as many Sculptor and Peoples choice awards
In 2012 he reduced his contest appearances and has gone nearly full-time as a professional Sand Sculptor creating marketing opportunities for his customers around the globe. He is also the owner of a Computer Education company that provides classes for teaching engineers to write computer programs to analyze
massive amounts of data.
Seeing a large sand sculpture in progress on the beach in South Padre Island Texas (home of the Sons of the Beach sand castle wizards) gave him the bug, and sculpting sand quickly became a passion.
