Since 1995, Tony has worked in television newsrooms around the country. Tony started his career on the assignment desk at ABC News in Los Angeles, then spent several years covering politics in both Tampa and Washington, D.C. before landing in Phoenix where he helped ABC15/KNXV-TV grow a morning show audience. He later set his sights on developing a blog about the Phoenix light rail and the car-free lifestyle.

A native Angeleno, Tony took an opportunity to return to his roots and move back to LA in 2010 to work for former City Councilmember Bill Rosendahl. When Rosendahl retired, Tony then went to work for Councilmember O'Farrell.

Tony has a degree in Journalism and Political Science from the University of Arizona.
