Before graduating college at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Anthony started an occupational safety and health company and a real estate development firm. Both of which continue to successfully operate today.
When not developing innovative nightlife entertainment, creating real estate deals or editing photographs on his laptop, Anthony enjoys traveling, hitting up the latest clubs, bars and lounges with friends, or just entertaining at home.
Anthony was born and raised in New Jersey. Still living in the Garden State, he divides his time between NJ, New York City and South Beach, Florida.
