After two years Tony decided to return to the stage and continue his drama classes. While at Mumford High School, he received his first lead role as Walter Lee Younger in A Raison in the Sun, and other roles such as The Giant in Jack and the Beanstalk, and Maleficent in Disney's version of Sleeping Beauty all being school plays. Among other students, Tony was given the assignment to write a play, direct it, and star in it. Did he ever rise to the occasion? He wrote a script entitled Jealous Royalty and portrayed Prince Eric Von'Amburg an alcoholic Prince who was jealous of his brother because he was crowned King instead of him. This was the launch of his writing career. At the end of the class, Tony received several awards, one for Best Lead Actor for A Raison in the Sun, Best Play Write for Jealous Royalty, and for Best Villain/Vixen for Sleeping Beauty, which brought him great praise from his peers and teachers. Since high school, Tony has had small roles in local plays and one major role as Shakespeare's Othello and was a feature audience member in the movie 61* directed by Billy Crystal. He also attended Specs Howard School of Broadcast Arts in Southfield, Michigan where he graduated valedictorian. Now, ever the opportunist Tony focuses more on continuing building his company Sleep Tight Entertainment which he founded in 2003. Primarily a music production and film production company that will later be followed by several subsidiary companies including but not limited to a chain of night clubs, clothing line, two non-profits, a magazine, and a school for entertainment, law, and medicine. As an ambitious creator/writer he has also written five screenplays and eight more under way. In the past year and a half Tony has accomplished many things that most people can only dream of accomplishing. First making the connection with and being consulted by Larry Dee. As result of that connection Tony has gained a wealth of knowledge and continues to grow both in business and spiritually. He has secured world wide theater, DVD, and CD distribution as well as forming partnerships with other film production companies in both India and Romania, and is now searched for by name on the most popular search engines. Presently, Tony is negotiating a multi-million dollar deal that will fund several feature films and re-establish Sleep Tight Entertainment's music division.

Never being one to use clichés, but this is only the beginning for him.
