Hi, I’m
Frank Rycak Jr

I am a designer.

About Me

In 2010, I received my degree in Graphic Design. I worked in Miami for 2 years at 2 different companies as a Graphic Designer in various roles. In 2012, I moved to Beijing, China and worked there for close to 4 years. In early 2015 I decided I wanted the skills needed to become a developer. I came across Wyncode, a Full Stack Web Developer course in Miami. That’s when I made the move. Came back to Miami, finished Wyncode and now I am looking for a design heavy role.

Whiskey Connoisseur

This topic speaks for itself. Even though it’s not exactly a service, I have been told I make a good drinking buddy. After a long day there is nothing like relaxing with some fine spirits from across the pond.
