Tony currently serves as a program coordinator in the Conference and Noncredit Programs department of Kansas State University Global Campus. Tony coordinates the conferences put on by the College of Education and conferences of numerous external clients including the Great Plains Network and the American Society of Mammalogists.

Prior to his staff appointment at KSU, Tony was the first director of the newly renovated C.L. Hoover Opera House in Junction City, Kansas. In his role there, he oversaw the day to day operations of a multi-million dollar performing arts center. The Opera House was home to a long running community theatre organization, the community band, and an annual series of national performing arts shows ranging from stand-up comedy, to traveling musicians, to Broadway-style theatrical productions. Prior to directing the Opera House, Tony served as the Director of Bands in the Riley County (Kan.) school district and the Director of Bands and Choirs in the Stafford (Kan.) school district.

Outside of work, Tony enjoys time with his wife, two beautiful daughters, and dog Bela. He enjoys watching college sports and spending his free time fishing, woodworking, traveling and playing in the park with his family.
