A native New Orleanian, Frank has been an artist as far back as he can remember. Frank holds an Associate’s Degree in Graphic Design, which he earned in 1999. While working as a print production designer, Aymami taught himself how to use a camera by perusing the beautiful cemeteries of New Orleans and literally photographing everything with which he came in contact. People took notice to his eye, and after working 5 years as a designer, decided to make what would become a successful career switch.
Frank is also into health & fitness, and serves on the board of directors of the East Jefferson YMCA. Frank is a dedicated husband and father to three kids. He and his family reside in Metairie, LA.
