  • Frank Nemecek

    Frank Nemecek is a writer, filmmaker, and all-around pain in the [expletive deleted]. He started the Warrendale (Detroit) Blog in December of 2005 as side project to his freelance writing and video work. He did so mostly because none of the major media outlets were covering the Warrendale neighborhood in Detroit where he lives. Since then, he has been interviewed about his neighborhood on CNN Radio, Detroit Free Press, National Public Radio, The Wall Street Journal, and WXYZ-TV.
