Tony is also Hawaii’s premiere fight choreographer and has been teaching stage combat and directing fights for more than 20 years. He is a Master Teacher with Dueling Arts International and has choreographed over 100 productions including stage, indie film, opera and burlesque. He is currently living in Hawai‘i and is a recent graduate of the Stone Coast Creative Writing program, and the author of a novel now out on submission.
“With over a decade of professional experience, Tony is an excellent and most generous Instructor of Theatrical Violence and Stage Combat and a very creative and inventive Fight Director and Choreographer. Any actor, director, production company and student of theatre should seek out his expertise for training and/or production assistance.” –Gregory Hoffman, Board Member of Directors at Sea Breeze Power Corp.
