tony is a poet and filmmaker, who is lucky to have found an artistic home at the word of mouth variety show, The Shithole, where they speak their sad-funny-ironic-sincere-surreal-wholehearted-n'-sloppy thoughts each week.

their short, foundfootagexx100n.s.1, premiered at SXSW ’17, and had its online premiere through No Budge. they wrote & performed in Allen Anders Live at the Comedy Castle (circa 1987) directed by Laura Moss, which premiered at SXSW '18. most recently, they were interviewed about their low budget filmmaking success through No Film School.

they’re actively trying to figure out how to make the world a better place, all the while screaming their horrors and generosities into the world. they love art that makes people question their lives and maybe love harder.

indebted to and in debt to nyu for dramatic writing & film, the performing arts project, and the eugene o’neill theater center.
