Throughout his career, storytelling has always been a focus and passion. Frank honed his storytelling ability as a news writer and on-air personality at several different TV stations – from Minnesota to California – where the ability to communicate and forge a rapport with viewers is essential. Off the air, Frank's communication skills have remained an asset in his various roles writing and editing content for businesses, non-profits and corporations large and small (clients include the Minnesota State Lottery, Grain Belt and Gold'n Plump).
Aside from his work with Flying Pan, Frank serves as an editor/producer for American Forces Network (AFN), where he writes and produces promotions for U.S. troops. These messages provide a much-needed “touch of home" for those serving in our armed forces.
