Stuff to Know

In the Beginning...
Frank was born and raised in Southern California, where he dreamed of becoming a chicken farmer, fell in love with bad monster movies, and bagged groceries after school.  His mother worked as a dress model and decorated cakes to make ends meet as a single mom in the 1950s. His mom and step-dad worked hard to support their yours-mine-and-ours family, and he’s eternally grateful they taught him to work hard.
