He is a graduate of  the University of Iowa with a passion for learning anything and everything about entrepreneurship and a deep commitment to continuous improvement.

His expertise in business modeling, finance, marketing, business management, and communications has been a great asset to the clients with whom he has worked. As an athlete and coach, Anthony developed the ability to always learn from every perspective, always be a student of the game, and to always work hard to become an expert.
