"Cosmic" Fred Flores is a writer, journalist, waiter, telephone surveyer, and an early Whistler resident. He grew up surfing in California. From 1961 to 1967 he completed a Bachelor degree in English at California State University. In 1968, he was a research analyst for the Behavioral Science Corporation in Van Nuys, CA before moving to Canada at the end of 1968 to dodge the Vietnam draft and work as the Cultural and Social Areas Supervisor for the SUB at UBC in Vancouver. He worked as an ads manager for The Georgie Strait, and was originally drawn to Whistler by a woman. The couple travelled back and forth to see each other until 1972, when he moved to Whistler. He lived at the Soo Valley Toad Hall, and when he broke up with his then-girlfriend, Sally, he moved into the neighbour's house for a time before heading to the BC Interior, to Rock Creek, BC in 1973. There Fred found himself offering his building services to the organizer of what can be best described as a 40-day boot-camp for New Age seekers, the Arica School. After completing the course and taking up yoga and meditation, he moved to Indian Arm, BC in later 1973 to work at a Keg 'n Cleaver with some of his friends from Whistler. After working there a few years and traveling on and off, he got in touch with friends at Tokum Corners, who convinced him to move back to Whistler in 1975. This time, he learned to ski. The Keg Restaurant in Whistler had just opened there, so he began waiting tables and even began hosting weekly film screenings (called 'Cosmic Films Presents') there. He was also writing articles for the Whistler Question on Whistler's early history, which included interviews with older residents. He also contributed to the early satirical Whistler newspaper, The Whistler Answer, in the 1970s. In 1980, he decided to leave Whistler for several reasons: an injured disc in his back which meant less skiing, and also the 'Disneyfication' of the resort town. He moved back to Vancouver, and from 1988 to 2006 he was working at Sophie's Cosmic Cafe. His years in Vancouver, in his words, encompassed a struggle with drug addiction and a failed marriage. Between 2009 and 2014, he was working at R.A. Malatest & Associates as a telephone surveyer, living in his RV in Victoria, BC.
