Tony produced and stars in the film which tells the story of the hardships of the life that the angler and whaler endured.

He holds a B.A. degree with a minor in economics from North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University, Greensboro, NC, and a M.Sc. in Library & Information Science from North Carolina Central University, Durham, NC, with a concentration in information management.

Since 2011, as an independent historian and researcher, Tony has recently written two children’s books (unpublished) about North Carolina coastal history. He is currently working on several non-fiction works and documentaries in an effort to preserve coastal cultures and traditions and educate families for future generations.

Tony truly enjoys photography, canoeing and crabbing on the marsh and fishing the beach. In his free time, Tony loves jazz, lounge music and economic policy discussions and spending time with sincere friends.
