Hi I'm Frank

I live in Arizona. I am a husband and father. I'm an avid cyclist, play guitar, and play competitive darts.

About Me

I was born & raised in Los Angeles county, California. I grew up surfing and skateboarding. My father taught me to play guitar when I was 12 years old. The Summer before my Senior year of high school, my parents decided to move to Boise, Idaho. After adjusting to the culture shock, I really liked living there. Even though I haven't lived in Boise since the early 1980's, I still consider it to be like "home". After serving a 2 year mission for the Mormon Church and returning to Boise, I met a young lady who would later become my wife. She is an awesome woman, and we've been married since 1983. A few years after we were married, we moved to the Phoenix area of Arizona, and have been here ever since. We've raised our 3 children here in the Desert Southwest, and we are very proud of them. I am an avid cyclist. I started cycling in 1984. I tried mountain biking several years ago, but I crashed almost every time I went, so now I stick to the relative safety of the streets. I've played guitar pretty much all of my adult life, and me and some friends have even formed a band. I'm 51 years old and am the youngest guy in the band, so we're a bunch of old farts that are just having fun. Don't look for us to be playing at your local concert venue anytime soon, though!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined the Mormon Church when I was 7 years old. So, I was pretty much raised as a Mormon. As a somewhat rebellious teenager in the 70's, it was difficult to follow all of the teachings and principles at times. But I did the best I could, and when I was 19 years old, I decided to be a missionary, which is a HUGE commitment. After getting married, my wife and I continued to be devout Mormons. We have had our share of difficulties, but we have always been very happy that we have the Church in our lives. We have a peacefulness in our lives, knowing that we are grounded in the teachings of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to be a good example to everyone I come in contact with. I do my best to obey the commandments of God, and live by the principles and values that the Mormon Church teaches.
