As an author/director of numerous screenplays, short films, and documentaries (HBO, Cinemax, and the CBC) in conjunction with a series of published comics under his belt (Batman & The Signal, X'ed), Tony's penchant for creating fictional and immersive worlds catapulted him into numerous future-facing residencies and served as the inspiration for sculpting co-creation spaces which produce new artworks, prototypes, frameworks, and civic solutions in his Community-World-building initiative (the ReWriters Room) with artists, entrepreneurs, institutions, and communities-at-large.
When he’s not advocating for underrepresented students to embark on game design/tech careers through his Tenfold Gaming Initiative (TGI), he’s building his latest venture, the School of Lived Experience, a renewal center framework comprised of somatic community-centric programs, interactive public art experiences, co-creation hubs, and virtual engagement platforms which provide ongoing opportunities for local communities, students, and artists to interact, heal, & build together.
