Fred B. Amos II aka Tuey (pronounced two-e)
First, please don’t call me Fred. My father is Fred. I’m Tuey. I earned a Bachelor of Rhymes from Wesleyan Children’s Center (now Wesleyan Academy) in High Point, and my diploma states my name is Tuey Amos, so that must be what it is. I’m a lawyer, but you already know that.
My superpower facial recognition. According to some tests I qualify as a super-recognizer. I’ll forget a name in a heartbeat, but I never forget a face.
My favorite things are chocolate and coffee. I like to ingest both in copious amounts.
My hobbies are birding, reading and tinkering. I like to walk around in the woods looking and listening for birds. I like to read murder mysteries, especially those set in the Victorian era. And I find any project involving power tools particularly enjoyable.
I am a dog person. After all, I met my beautiful wife while we were each walking our dogs in downtown Raleigh. So, a big thank you to my dachshund Argus. You were the best wing-dog ever my friend. I am forever grateful.
Thanks to my amazing wife, I have three beautiful children that I adore. I think they like me too, but sometimes it’s hard to tell.
