I identify as Gay Male

Hey there! I'm Frank. I grew up in El Salvador Central America, but I've studied and lived in Mexico, the USA, London, Singapore, Australia and now I'm lucky enough to call Melbourne my home.

I'm passionate about design, entrepreneurship, technology and food. When I'm not trying out the newest restaurant or craft beer, you can find me running along the Yarra with my headphones on, or walking my 2 dogs, Lola & Kevin who I love and think of as my own children.

I was never good or showed any interest in sports growing up, but lately, I discovered that I'm actually a really good runner, completed two half marathons last year and training for my next one now.

I joined StartOut to be a mentor because growing up a narrow-minded, toxic-masculinity driven country, I never had someone to look up to or talk about my sexuality with and I'd love to be that role-model to someone. It wasn't until I saw the world outside and met amazing mentors along the way that I discovered and started embracing my true self at work, with friends and at every aspect of life; and hopefully, I can be that source of guidance to someone else.
