Before devoting himself fully to photographic art Tony was an academic veterinary surgeon and immunologist. He has been on the faculties of several universities, most recently, the Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in North Grafton, MA. There, he served as Professor and Chair of the Surgery Department and as an Associate Dean until retiring in 2005. He resides in Boston, MA and Peru, VT with his wife Claudia, who is a watercolor artist. Their son Tom, daughter–in–law Carolynn and grandsons Zeke and Arlo live in Madison, WI; their son Eric lives in Los Angeles, CA.
As long as he can remember Tony has been involved in visual art. This started with drawing and has included clay sculpture, oil painting and film photography. Since 2003 his artistic passion has been photography, and retirement from academia, two years later, allowed him to focus on it exclusively, using digital capture and producing archival pigment prints.
