About Frank

I have a passion for Entrepreneurship. I crave the creative process of designing and building business. I'm driven by the fact that as an entrepreneur one SEES things where others can’t; He BELIEVES in things others don’t, but Most Importantly He PURSUES things others won't!

Interesting Anecdote: I lived in Costa Rica for 2 years where I started a beach side, Shaved Ice and Smoothie business. After establishing multiple locations, I eventually sold the businesses- which are still thriving today! To the expat community of the Northern Pacific Region of CR, I am known as "The guy who brought Shaved Ice to Costa Rica!" or to the locals as: "The gringo with the Black Defender!"

What I am up to Now:
I am the founder of a startup that has developed an app for the barber industry. We have been in stealth mode for the past year, but since our recent acceptance into an exciting NYC accelerator program and our first 'seed' we are "coming out" (at least in Beta) One recent mention in a NJ Tech publication said we will "Disrupt the men's grooming industry!" - a challenge we eagerly await!

We seek--> Interesting and Talented members to complete our team. Looking for additional assistance on the sales, operations and tech fronts.
