During his senior year at Clovis High School, Tony was featured on the cover of BMXer Magazine, and was sponsored by Fox Racing, Spy Sunglasses,and Airwalk Shoes. On
the surface Tony's path seemed destined for stardom. However, Tony experienced crippling anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideations. Tony's substance use began during
his senior year leading to the deterioration of his mental health, and opioid addiction soon followed. Due to his misuse of Oxycontin and other drugs a life of addiction, crime, homelessness, and incarceration became his reality.
Since parolling prison in 2008, Tony has tirelessly worked towards achieving his goals and the dreams he’d set out for while incarcerated. He raced BMX professionally for several years and continued on to coach Brooke Crain to a 4th place finish at the Rio Olympic Games, accomplishing his dream of going to the Olympics. Today Tony is an author, an owner of pH Wellness drug and alcohol treatment facility, and one of the world's most requested mental health and substance use speakers.
