Anthony would like to dedicate his career to the teachers who influenced his journey, including (but not limited to) the following individuals: Brian Callahan, Dr. Brian Zator, Erik Johnson, Brian Delsignore, Clark Gardner, Dr. Brian Tinkle, Matthew Coley, Tom Burritt, Paul Rennick, Mike McIntosh, Maraca Two, Jonathan Ovalle, Alan Miller, Jim Casella, and many others. Anthony’s philosophy is a balance of the three essential parts these individuals have ingrained into him: powerful performance, genuine enjoyment, and lifelong learning.
