About me

Claudia’s life has been fashioned by the arts, travel and her adventures on an array of television series. Claudia spent her early years living, studying and working in Seattle and Paris. She has taken degrees in lithography and photography. Claudia moved to Los Angeles in 1999 and took a job working on Eco Challenge Argentina for the Discovery channel, Mark Burnett’s extreme adventure race and thus began the work that would take her on adventures around the world. Since then she has worked as a producer and director on such shows as MTV’s Road Rules and the Real World, the genre-defining Paris Hilton/Nicole Ritchie romp The Simple Life, America’s Next Top Model and many more. Claudia has gone face to face with spitting camels, bungee-jumped out of a plane and has stories for days about her experiences. Needless to say, Claudia immerses herself in whatever she is doing at the moment. Claudia Frank believes in telling stories, true and otherwise, in a visual format. She tells tales of the world we live in with an unfailing sense of hope, faith, love, and, perhaps most importantly, her ever-present humor.
