My name is Jared Kohn. In school I did art as a subject, which included Graphic Design and a bit of painting and then when I left school I studied Architecture which is kind of a combination of practical, design and obviously creativity as well with color, form, texture ect. I worked as an Architect for about eight years. I really loved designing buildings and designing space and it’s interaction with people, but I didn’t enjoy the industry very much. It’s quite a difficult industry to be in and I think my personality just didn’t gel well with it.

Berta le Roux (Emma in 7de Laan) het 'n informele onderhoud met Frank gevoer waar bietjie meer oor sy boek, maar ook sy persoonlike lewe, gesels is. Daarna kon die media hom vrae vra waarop hy lekker gemaklik met ons gesels het. Ons het hom beleef as ernstig met 'n fyn sin vir humor.
The Vagabond gaan oor Frank se soektog na God se wil vir sy loopbaan en lewe en bemoedig elke persoon wat die boek lees om regtig te gaan soek na die betekenis in sy lewe. Frank se vraag vir jou is: "Is your life worth living?"
Die boek word beskryf as 'n maklike lees, tog raak dit jou persoonlik.' Easy to read, but not an easy read'.
Frank het met ons gedeel dat hy deur storms moes gaan om die ware toestand van sy hart te …
