Frind's parents, German farmers who emigrated just before his fourth birthday, bought a 1,200-acre plot 10 miles from town and initially lived in a trailer without electricity, phones, or running water.The family's closest neighbors were a mile and a half away, and, apart from a younger brother, Frind had few friends."He's always watching his environment to apply it to the site," says Kanciar."Once in a while, from the middle of nowhere, he'll say, 'Why is that girl doing that? ' He'll check people out in restaurants and watch how they interact.
A year ago, they relaxed for a couple of weeks in Mexico with a yacht, a captain, and four of Kanciar's friends. "Rough life."t's a 21st-century fairy tale: A young man starts a website in his spare time. He hasn't gone to MIT, Stanford, or any other four-year college for that matter, yet he is deceptively brilliant.
Frind drops his bag and plops himself down in front of one of them. There's a 0,000 order waiting for his signature.
It's from Video Egg, a San Francisco company that is paying Frind to run a series of Budweiser commercials in Canada.
He always says exactly what he thinks."With friends and family, Frind expresses affection through playful pranks.
Frind will spend hours hiding in the three-bedroom apartment he and Kanciar share, furtively flipping light switches, tapping on doors, and ducking into rooms to play on his girlfriend's fear of ghosts.
