While growing up in New York City, Anthony was passionate about understanding the world around him, he says, “As a kid, I was naturally curious and I asked a lot of questions. I questioned the validity of everything and I'm pretty sure it annoyed my mother, teacher, and Sunday school teachers!” He has always been an avid reader and developed a keen interest in politics and history; “I wondered why things were the way they were and how I might get involved.” In college, he focused on a career in journalism. He began writing and telling stories. He gravitated toward stories pertaining to society, politics, and economics. Anthony traveled to Europe spending time in France studying international politics and economics. He spent time in Mexico and South America learning more about other cultures, learning Spanish and all the time asking questions and seeking answers.
His first job in broadcast journalism was at WWLP-TV 22, the NBC affiliate in western Massachusetts. He remembers it well, “I got that job while on a study abroad program in Santiago, Chile. I still remember Skyping with my first news director why battling the shoddy wifi connection. As a journalist, I want to share people's reality with the world. I also care about social issues and shedding a light on topics such as immigration, poverty, economic mobility, and equality. I feel that these stories give people from around world compassion and allows them to understand the experiences behind the headlines.”
Anthony’s relentless thirst for knowledge took him back to Santiago, Chile to work on his Master’s Degree in International Studies. He is a freelance journalist enterprising and writing stories about one of the most exciting cities in South America. In his spare time Anthony likes reading, photography, discovering places of local history and paragliding. Anthony is available for freelance work immediately.
