  Over the years, Tony worked as a pizza cook, website designer, dancing costumed character, waiter, insurance drone, portrait artist, custom framer, camel ride attendant at the zoo, and the guy at the airport that waves orange wands at the planes. Yet nothing seemed to fit.

  Finally, Tony stumbled upon cartooning. After years of studying fine art and classical drawing, Tony resorted back to the simple, yet stupid doodles that used to get him in trouble in the third grade. His creation F Minus ran in his college paper,
The State Press, during his final four semesters at Arizona State University.

  In December of 2004, F Minus was named the winner of the 2004
MTVu Strips Contest, chosen by judges Scott Adams of Dilbert and David Rees of Get Your War On, as well as more than 200,000 online voters. Tony received a development deal with United Feature Syndicate. On April 17th, 2006, F Minus began worldwide syndication, and is currently in over 150 newspapers. In the first year of syndication, F Minus was nominated for a National Cartoonist Society division award: Best Newspaper Panel, and nominated again in the same category in 2009. Two F Minus books are available, the first titled F Minus and the second, F Minus: This Can't Be Legal.

From January, 2010 to March, 2011, Tony wrote a monthly humor column called for the Times Publications.
