Freddy Lopez

Vivarium Operations Specialist

Starting the day with a Vietnamese iced coffee, Fredrick, aka Fred, Freddy, or Fredward (but never Rick), has been adding finesse to Retro as an Animal Care Technician since July 2023. Prior to Retro, he spent a decade in the coffee industry, managing cafes and perfecting his barista skills. At home, surrounded by his orange cat Goose and pugs Buddha and Beans, Fred hopes of one day convincing his fiancée to add chickens, mice and whatever animals she’ll say “yes” to, to the family. Beyond his love for animal care, he strategizes over chess, immerses in live music, and indulges in all the tasty food the Bay Area has to offer.
