„As a lifelong fan of amusement parks, it’s easy to tell when someone shares a passion for our industry at the deepest of levels. Frank definitely has that passion. What’s most important, though, is his ability to mold that passion and enthusiasm into wildly innovative but very attainable real-world products. It’s not easy to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to innovation in our fast-moving business, but Frank is one of the few with a demonstrated history of doing just that!“
– Jeff Pike | Skyline Attractions

„Frank was a pleasure to work with. He is not only a clearly experienced engineer in this specialized area, but he is also clearly passionate about the industry.“  – Malcolm Burt | VR PhD candidate
