Born and raised in Tampa, Florida, Frank began his creative life studying dance – ballet and modern. A move to New York City in 1980 shifted his focus to experimental theater and installation environments. Santa Fe became home base in 1996, where he continued his installation work, eventually incorporating video. In 2002, he and Mariannah Amster produced the first CURRENTS exhibition which became an annual, international media arts festival in 2010. They remain the Co-Executive/Artistic Directors of Parallel Studios, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, which produces CURRENTS.
