Tony is a native of Pittsburgh, PA and a graduate of Penn State University. He is a CPA and spent his business career in a variety of senior accounting and financial management position. Tony also has served on the Board of Directors for two publicly traded companies. After retiring in 2003, Tony was diagnosed with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. His disease progressed to NASH (nonalcoholic steatohepatitis), cirrhosis and liver cancer, followed by a life-saving liver transplant in March 2018. His experience with liver disease motivated him to form NASH kNOWledge, a non-profit corporation with the mission of increasing public awareness of nonalcoholic liver disease. Through NASH kNOWledge, Tony has developed educational materials and a website nash-now.org he wishes he had when he was first diagnosed and also produced a documentary intended to be a cautionary tale for those at risk or newly diagnosed with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. The documentary was shown on Pittsburgh’s PBS affiliate and Maryland Public Television.
