Meet the 2019-2020 Alumni Association Council President
T.J. Frank '93
T.J. Frank was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and graduated from The Lamplighter School in 1993. Following Lamplighter, he attended the Episcopal School of Dallas and Southern Methodist University. After graduating from college, he was involved in music production and land development, but always had a passion for the service industry. In 2007, T.J. and a lifelong friend opened Southpaws Grill, a healthy fast-casual eatery.
T.J. decided to get into real estate in 2017 because he wanted to create opportunities that were beyond his current endeavors. Architecture has always been a huge interest of his, and the potential creative use of spaces has recently become a passion. Moreover, having a natural love for interacting and helping others, real estate made perfect sense for his next career choice.
A quote he lives by is “never let good enough be good enough.” There is always room for improvement and growth. In his mind, there isn’t anything more valuable in business than giving memorable and consistent service. Life is a process and business is no different.
Life away from work is spent with his beautiful wife and two amazing kids. If he gets any spare time you can find him on the golf course, on the lake, or Southern California relaxing.
