Cool Story, Bro.
As a kid, Tony had two passions; wheelies and art. After taking a few too many slams trying to hone his wheelie skills, he quickly learned that art didn’t hurt as bad.
With encouragement from his family and friends, Tony began to draw and paint on anything he could get his grubby hands on. Paper led to canvas; canvas led to plywood; plywood led to bridges and overpasses; bridges and overpasses led to the sides of buildings; and sides of buildings led to trouble. In an attempt to keep Tony on track, his parents bought him an airbrush. While working on his degree in graphic design and entrepreneurship from Western Carolina University, he began exploring the ins and outs of this newly acquired tool.
In 2010, he finished school, boxed up the airbrush and took a couple of years to bounce around between Asheville, NC and Steamboat Springs, CO. It wasn’t until 2012 when he was hired by Specialized Bicycle Components, that he unpacked his airbrush set. He picked up right where he left off, painting everything… again. Tony’s two passions have stayed with him throughout his journey, but he still sucks at wheelies.
