I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife and our cat.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University - one of the top 10 film schools in the country. While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning. I helped pioneer their online school there. Most recently, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team. Throughout this time I built my Video School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. In May of 2015, I left the 9-5 world to make my own path. Since then, I've made more money, worked fewer hours, and only have done the things I love each day.

I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.

My name is Anthony. I'm an avid reader, reading at least one new book per week. I love learning new things, and seeing how things work. I love building things and coming up with new projects for my family.

My expertise comes in the form of photography and inventing. I've been taking photos for years and believe I can teach kids how to take great photos. I also invent new games and play them with my family. You will learn a lot from my classes, I guarantee it! Each of my courses contains engaging and high quality content for you to enjoy.

Please feel free to message me if you have any questions pertaining to a class.
