Anthony has worked all over the world, an avid surfer since he first learned to swim on Sydney’s beaches, he grew up constantly in the ocean and has always considered himself an environmental custodian for the next generation. Introduced to the work of AWC in 2013 whilst living and working in New York, by his own admission he was aghast by the reported rates of native Australian flora and fauna decline. He has been an active and passionate supporter of AWC ever since and was delighted to join the board of Friends of AWC in 2018. Combining his appreciation of the Australian environment in particular and a heartfelt sense of responsibility, Anthony is deeply committed to the important work of AWC.
Anthony and his family moved from New York to London in 2015 working as the General Manager of Markets (Europe) for National Australia Bank. He has recently moved back to Australia. He holds a Bachelor of Economics from Macquarie University and a Master of Finance from The University of Technology Sydney.
