Tony is an interdisciplinary designer with a background in social innovation and graphic communications. Using a combination of holistic thinking, visual craftsmanship, and a deep sense of empathy, Tony works with Mach49 client teams to create impactful products and services.
Tony was drawn to UX and human-centered design while working in the social sector. As the Program Manager of a major anti-poverty nonprofit, Tony applied methods from IDEO’s Design Kit to transform a drop-in resource center into a financial coaching program for low-income parents. The center he helped pilot in Washington, DC became the blueprint for the organization’s nationwide operations.
Tony received his BA in Art History from Carleton College in Minnesota and holds certificates in UX and Visual Design from General Assembly Boston. He also completed hands-on training in composition, drawing, and storyboarding from the ArtCenter College of Design in Los Angeles. When he’s not designing, Tony can be found exploring nature, drawing cartoons, or reading the Lord of the Rings.
