I’m all about helping my friends out with their passion so I offered to help him get started with his blog by taking some before and after photos of his clients this past weekend. There’s never a dull moment with Frank. Also, it’s really interesting to meet new people who are very much different from each other.
Lives in a very Jewish Williamsburg community and pursuing his PhD in psychology. He wants to be a therapist. He wants to interpret dreams. I’ve told him a few of my dreams to test him out and he really does know what he’s talking about. No, really. He’s a fellow Binghamton University alum except he breezed by with a 4.0 GPA and made it look easy. You should give him a try before he starts charging for his services!
Other fun facts: really laid back, loves soccer, and sets his living room climate control to broil (maybe that’s how he stays to skinny!)
He and Frank go way back to junior high school. It was my first time meeting his client/friend. Cool guy and really down to earth. He rescued his dog as a puppy when he found him in a dumpster. His name isn’t Stitch for no reason. Stitch was used as a punching bag by pitbulls. His stitches run from his back all the way down to his front right leg. I also noticed his right ear was torn. When petting him, I can tell he was still traumatized from his past experiences. I think I’d rather save a dog if I ever decide to get one.
I didn’t have a lot of time to get to know him because I was too busy successfully finding macarons from an Almondine Bakery in Park Slope. I found their vanilla, coffee and pistachio flavored macarons to be the best.
Frank always dedicated time to hone his skills even as a full-time student. He has been cutting hair way before I met him and I think he has come a long way in terms of skill. Admittedly, I don’t know anything about the art of hair cutting but I definitely noticed consistently improved results and speed. I am really happy to learn that he will be pursuing the next step towards becoming a professional barber/groomer. He has big plans and a big heart. The blog post title reads “Brooklyn Groomer” but I know you’ll be all over the world one day. I’m glad to have been able to help him out especially since he has helped me out on numerous shoots already. I hope I know you will succeed! Go hard or go home. It’s what you always tell me.
Here are some more photos from that day:
