Born in Detroit, Michigan Anthony grew up in a family of four that relocated around the country for nearly eleven years. At the age of eight, he started his moving adventures from Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan to Northbrook, Illinois to Plano, Texas then to Long Island (Glen Cove), New York and finally what he refers to as home, Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan. Anthony graduated college earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology from Western Michigan University as well earned a Masters of Business Administration with a specialization in Marketing degree from Walsh College. He has earned the “Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges” Award plus additional honors in his field of studies. After College, he and his wife Julie started their family with the addition of their first dog Maximus, an English Labrador Retriever. They recently have added another pet to their family by rescuing Wrigley, a Basset Hound. Maximus inspired Anthony’s award winning children’s book, “Dogs Move Too! From Max’s Point of View.” Anthony and his wife Julie continue to add stories of Maximus and their other family pets in a children’s book series “Read with Max.” Anthony believes children can relate from inspirational stories of pets and it will help children manage similar experiences in their own life. When Anthony is not working, he enjoys boating, playing racquetball, and of course spending time with his best friends, Maximus and Wrigley.
