At 33, Frank has worked 14 yrs

Frank had the pleasure to serve Members of both political parties
but he realizes that people are more important that parties.
On April 12, 1995, (at 23),
Frank was appointed by The Honorable Howard Greene, U.S. Senate
Sergeant at Arms to work as a bi-partisan figure on the floor of the
United States Senate. This opportunity enabled him to interact daily
with all 100 U.S. Senators. Frank served his hometown four years
under the leadership of Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (1996-2000). In
2001, he served his home state working in Governor Parris
Glendening's Capitol Hill Office for the fine people of the Great
State of Maryland.
Frank was always active with
student government and in seventh grade served as Treasurer and was
elected President of the Student Body in Middle School. He played
three years of basketball at Thomas Stone High School. Frank played
11 seasons of organized basketball and coached three years while in
college. Frank's greatest accomplishment was awarded not on the
court but off the court. Like many students in high school, Frank
was invited to many of the parties but he politely declined because
he viewed his reputation more important than temporal acceptance
from peers. Attending only two parties in four years of high school,
Frank was crowned Prom King his senior year by 1,200 of his peers
due to his convictions and kindness to all. Frank's message of hope
reminds all that we can still "reach the top" without bottoming out.
Frank loves to repeat the famous quote: "If you lose your wealth,
you have lost nothing. If you lose your health, you have lost
something but if you lose your character (reputation), you have lost
Frank's experience as an athlete, mentor, coach, youth pastor and
concerned citizen enable him to not only communicate with people but
more importantly connect with people. Frank loves basketball,
throwing football, washing cars, making friends and most of all, his
beautiful daughter, Hannah.

Christ, Frank's favorite Biblical person is Joseph of Arimathea.
Frank's father retired in 1995, as Deputy-Chief of the United States
Capitol Police. Frank's father is a fourth generation police officer
in the Nation's Capital. Frank's ancestor was on duty at Ford's
Theater, Good Friday, 1865, the very evening President Abraham
Lincoln was assassinated. It has been noted that his ancestor
assisted in carrying President Lincoln across the street where he
died 11 hours later. Frank's family friend was a personal friend to
the late Elvis Presley and was asked to be a pallbearer at Elvis'
funeral. Frank's ancestor carried the "KING OF A NATION" and his
friend carried the "KING OF ROCK 'N ROLL" but like Joseph of
Arimathea we carry the "KING OF ALL KINGS!" Joseph of Arimathea
carried Christ one time but we carry Christ daily by our life and
lips. It is one thing to carry greatness but something entirely and
eternally different when GREATNESS (God) carries us!
"I am just a Western Union messenger boy delivering
a telegram of God's love to the door of humanity."
