Frank is a former high school science teacher and coach. Although photography was always a hobby of his, a busy career and family did not give him the chance to pursue it full time. Retirement has given him that opportunity. His work has been published in the Hartford Courant's online travel section, in the Willimantic Chronicle, and by Northeast Publications for a marketing booklet to promote New England golf. Many of his photos are on permanent exhibit at the Willimantic Country Club, and others appear in various area art exhibits.
