The Designer

The Cosplayer

The Individual

A graduate from Full Sail University, Tony has been working on a variety of skills in the field for quite some time. He continued to use his resources and knowledge during his tenure at the San Antonio Current and currently does projects for Starbucks® Coffee Company.

One of the origins to Digital Strike was Tony's active presence in the cosplay world. As a cosplayer, Tony not only created and modeled outfits at conventions and public events, but was also hired to create commission based work for others in the area.

Tony's love extends beyond the arts and the creative outlets he actively pursues. When he isn't creating, he spends his time traveling, catching up on on the geek life, reading on history, and venturing the nature trails enjoying the sceneries. He also has a passion for various coffees.
