Making websites scale in terms of usability and performance has always been a part of what Frank does. Frank is an enthusiastic devotee of Drupal, the widely used open source content management system known for its flexibility and versatility at creating a wide range of solutions. Frank applies his deep expertise in the architecture of Drupal to make solutions accessible, responsive and successful.
Frank is driven to explore new technologies has the experience to know when to embrace them. He has used this drive and experience to build websites professionally for nearly a decade, and as a hobby since the mid ‘90s.
Frank uses Drupal for creating standards-compliant websites for a variety of clients—everyone from the City of Marina Del Ray and UCLA’s Fowler Museum to the entertainment website The Wrap. Yet all of the diverse websites he's worked on have one thing in common: they are all highly usable. Prior to joining the Clarity team, Frank helped develop and launch several of the main campus websites for the California State University system.
He's also a recognized contributor to the Drupal community (both in real life and online), speaks at various Drupal-related camps and events, and contributes back to the open source community (Frank is author of the Google Analytics Event Tracking module and co-maintainer of the Drupal for Firebug module). He's also experienced with addressing accessibility, complex workflows, single sign-on, and customizing theming for responsive design.
