Working with nonprofit & community service organizations led Tony towards his original path of studying Pre-Medicine & Psychology at New York University, where he planned to become a doctor.
On that path, Tony discovered his passion for filmmaking & restarted his academic career.
Tony’s directorial work is centered around character studies — films that explore mental health topics such as anxiety, depression, and addiction. His films come in the hopes that he can raise awareness of mental illness & provide support for individuals that relate to his characters. Tony’s altruistic perspective led him towards changing the world in a positive way through filmmaking.
