A guitar player since the age of six, music has always been a part of Tony's life. After an adolescence spent playing in a series of unfortunately named bands, he retired his Flying V and turned to the world of film music. As a composer, Tony combines his early musical influences with his education in traditional composition to bring a unique sound to his projects. Tony began his career as a staff composer with the commercial music division of Hans Zimmer's Media Ventures in 1998. Since then he has written music for film, television, video games, and commercials. In 2009 Tony worked with composer Brian Tyler on the scores to the films “Law Abiding Citizen,” “Final Destination,” and “Fast & Furious.” He also composed the original score for the independent feature film "Ball Don't Lie," starring Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Nick Cannon, and Rosanna Arquette. He co-wrote the score to the short film "Gopher Broke," which went on to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Short in 2005. Tony's recent credits for television include “The Girls of Hedsor Hall” (MTV) as well as contributions to the scores for the SyFy Channel's "Warehouse 13" and FX Network's “The Riches.” His television promo music has been used for such hit shows as ABC's "Lost," HBO's "Rome," and NBC's "Friday Night Lights." His music can also be heard on several recent video games, such as “Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard,” released in March 2009. Other game credits include "The Wheelman," "Transformers Animated," and “The Outfit.” Tony has scored countless commercials through Emoto Music of Santa Monica where he was a staff composer from 1999-2001. He continues his commercial work with Emoto on a freelance basis and has recently completed high-profile spots for McDonald's, Toyota, and Addidas. Tony holds a degree in film scoring from the Berklee College of Music and a certificate from USC's Advanced Studies in Film Scoring program. He was also selected to participate in the ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop in the spring of 1997.
