Favorite word


Profession he'd like to attempt


Profession he'd not like to attempt

Mime, I can’t stay that quiet

If Heaven exists, what he would like to hear God say when he arrives at the Pearly Gates

Welcome, well done. Here’s your wings, a guitar and a cocktail.

Little known fact about Tony

My first career was in the military, as an Army officer.

Guilty pleasure

Macaroni and cheese or tater tots.

If he wasn't working for Emerson, Tony would be

Working for a non-profit tackling a global problem like malaria.

Wisdom he would you like to share with others, if only they’d ask

Don’t interpret the actions of others as slights unless you’re absolutely sure, it’s a waste of time and energy.
