Born in Texarkana, Texas, Tony headed west in 1983 to attend Washington State University where he graduated in 1986 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice. While there, Tony played baseball for Washington State and was named to the 1985 All Pac-10 Conference team.
Tony started his first business venture when he moved to the Bay Area in 1989. After several years of operating his private investigative business, Tony accepted an offer to manage corporate security for a wireless communications company spun-off from Pacific Bell, known as AirTouch Communications.
After successfully managing several projects and following a corporate merger that created Verizon Wireless, Tony accepted a position with Vodafone and became the Director of Support Services for the Asia / Americas region. There he learned his passion for commercial real estate and development. After leading several development projects throughout Asia, Mexico and the United States, he was offered a position at Vodafone’s World Headquarters in Newbury England.
However, the entrepreneur spirit called once again and in 2004, Tony resigned from Vodafone and began developing his own commercial projects in parts of the southern United States. After their completion, he moved back to the Bay Area in 2007 and began CSR Commercial Real Estate Services. Tony is also President of the Board for CSR Cares, a foundation aimed at supporting children and their families in South Bay Area communities.
Tony is a single dad and resides in San Jose, California with his four wonderful children. They inspire him every day in his work with charitable organizations. He enjoys coaching Little League, spending time and planning activities with his kids, travel, physical fitness, and occasionally golf.
