Born and raised in the Bay Area, Anthony initially moved to Southern California to pursue his aspirations in Brazilian jiu jitsu and finish his studies in sport psychology at CSU Long Beach. Cutting hair as a hobby since the age of 16, Anthony found a renewed passion for cutting hair after cutting many of his teammates and college peers.
With this new passion, Anthony enrolled in barber school at Paul Mitchell Costa Mesa where his love for cutting hair and barbering continued to grow. Having looked up to Vince since he started cutting hair, a dream came true when he was presented with the opportunity to join the Grey Matter team. Being surrounded by such creative individuals, Anthony continues to learn and grow in his craft, taking inspiration from not only traditional barbering, but classic and modern hair dressing.
To this day, Anthony religiously works on mastering his craft, priding himself in his attention to detail and understanding of hair on a technical level. In addition to being an outlet for creative and artistic expression, Anthony sees barbering as an opportunity to serve and share his passion with others.
