Words of Wisdom
"We realized that we needed to legitimize ourselves and that came through building an actual company. Crazy thing is this space was super hot and within 4 months we were acquired."
Frank questioned whether or not this exciting hobby of creating Vines could potentially become a career. He bet on it becoming his full time gig and for the first 6 months focused purely on building a community. Not to long after that, he eventually started working with brands like Chevrolet to Samsung to Jennifer Lopez's Street Team launching her Barbie Doll collection on Instagram.
His work has been featured on CNN, Mashable, Buzzfeed, USA Today, Yahoo!, Food Network, CNET, Huffington Post, PSFK, Gizmodo, Tribeca Film Festival and others.
