Owner // Designer
After attending the University of Central Florida from 1996-1999 in the Theatre BFA Program, Anthony joined FX Scenery & Display/FX Design Group. There he held various positions including Project Manager, Associate Designer, Associate Lighting Designer, Production /Shop Manager, and Account Executive/Design Consultant.
Throughout his 12 years with this growing set design/fabrication company, Anthony worked on hundreds of projects – for both network and local news affiliates, as well as sports and entertainment programs, and during his tenure at FX, he won a number of awards in the process. The varied positions allowed him to gain in-depth experience throughout all phases of Production, Lighting and Set Design, which became invaluable in the next phase of his design career.
As a next step, Anthony formed his own set design company serving the broadcast industry - Studio A Designs. Bringing his years of experience across all phases of design and production, Anthony leads Studio A to focus on a collaborative design process, featuring unique, cutting-edge creative solutions and bend-over-backward service. Since its inception, Studio A has created acclaimed designs for news affiliates across the US, as well as for international projects throughout the world.
With an eye to growing his successful design business, Anthony joined forces with another acclaimed and multi-talented designer, Glenn Anderson. Together they formed Z Space Creative, a set design firm that unites two talented and award-winning designers into one company that offers forward-thinking design and a collaborative team approach - a win-win for both these creative designers, and the clients they serve.
