He has a broad range of experience creating and managing communication services using digital media, television, print and live events. A working history that spans the creative and technical disciplines of traditional media and digtal media provide him with the necessary background to create, work with and facilitate multi-disciplinary high performance teams. 

In 2005 Tony won the prestigious Gold Award - New Media at the National Post DX Awards for an interactive art installation "Painting the Myth, The Mystery of Tom Thomson". Painting The Myth is an interactive system for Art Museums & Galleries in the form of a painter’s canvas on an easel. You use a paintbrush to paint the story - literally! The action of painting on the canvas controls the visual experience and triggers a dramatic audio narrative of the ‘story behind the canvas’.
Tony is currently pursuing several projects that stretch and explore the notions of game play, technology, art and cultural heritage.
