Growing up as a third-generation resident of Berkeley, CA, Anthony helped in his mother’s accounting business before earning a degree in American History from the University of Pennsylvania. When it came time to pick a career, he realized that he loved what he had been doing for so long already and entered the accounting profession. Anthony and his wife, another Bay Area native, are the parents of two young children.
Anthony serves on the board of Oakland Field of Dreams, a nonprofit organization that built and maintains Oakland Technical High School’s new baseball field and supports the school’s baseball and softball programs as well as other surrounding neighborhood youth sports programs. He is also the Treasurer of the Rockridge District Association and Director at Bananas, Inc. In his leisure hours, Anthony enjoys lifting weights, spending time with his family and traveling. Someday he’d like to visit Serbia, where his grandfather’s family lived in generations past.
