Tony started his acting career late in life. He was introduced to acting on the stage at Florida Southern College in Lakeland Florida. His first production he did was on a dare, a classic, Arsenic and Old Lace. He played a policeman in the play and loved every minute of it.
He spent the next 20 years building a successful medical supply business. This afforded him the opportunity to look back at his love for acting and decided this is what he wanted to do.
Tony started doing local plays and eventually that gave him the opportunity to seek out professional representation to pursue acting as a career.
Tony has worked both in film and tv and some of his major accomplishments would be to have worked with Oscar winner Melissa Leo on the HBO series Treme and Emmy Award winner Pruitt Taylor Vince on the Jules Verne inspired movie The Mysterious Island. He is also a recurring role on the 1959 circa tv show for Starz, Magic City where he plays a detective. Tony also had the pleasure to work with Patrick Flueger on the upcoming film The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe.
Tony has projects in development and post looking to be released by years end. Cross Threads is a family based show of a small town church where he plays senior Pastor Radke dealing with trials and tribulations that youth deal with in this small town. He is also slated to play a scientist in a wearwolf horror film Bruin Lake.
Tony and his wife Judy also started a foundation in their home town called The Amici Charity which helps provide assistance to those that need a helping hand.
