For Lifetime Arts, Frank has conducted creative writing, memoir writing, and theatre arts residencies in libraries, schools, and senior living facilities working with youth and mature populations. He is on the teaching artist roster of Teachers & Writers Collaborative, Arts Westchester, and Young Audiences New York. He is also an acting adjunct instructor at SUNY Purchase and Manhattanville College. Frank is the writer/performer of the Critically-Acclaimed Off-Broadway One-Man Play Blood Type: RAGU (Presently Touring). He has also acted in theatre, film and television, and is the resident Stage Director for Standing-O Productions, a youth theatre program in New Jersey. His writing exercises have been published in the book From Medusa to the Sky. His writing has also been analyzed in the book From Wiseguys to Wisemen. He is the recipient of the Arts Award given by the Westchester Arts Council recognizing his contributions as an arts educator, actor and playwright within the County of Westchester. He is the winner of two United Solo Awards as Best Comic Actor and Best Comedic Script for his solo performance work.

Be it acting, writing or memoir workshop, I use my own experiences as a published writer and produced solo performer to create a container of trust and sharing for community building. I also provide a creative atmosphere for my participants encouraging their freedom to express themselves. In the end, the goal for the workshops is to build self-esteem, empowerment, and a sense of fun and wonder.  Frank is available to travel anywhere in Westchester, Connecticut, Upstate New York, and the five boroughs in New York City.
