Tony is the past President of the San Diego Dockmaster’s Association; he sits on the Port of San Diego’s Harbor Safety Committee and has ambitions of starting a non-profit organization to expose underprivileged children and their families to boating and sailing in particular. He believes that the key to a healthy and thriving marine industry and population in the future is getting kids involved and engaged in boating early in life. Not to mention the thrill of getting to share the excitement first hand of a child’s first boating experience.
Tony and his fiancée, Kirsten, recently welcomed their first child and look forward to raising him in the beautiful oceans, lakes, and mountains of Southern California and college football stadiums of central Pennsylvania!
