Tony is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin Law School and earned his B.A. at the University of Chicago. Throughout his career, he has sought to empower people most impacted by legal and policy decisions so they can be a force for positive change. Prior to joining MEA, Tony served in various leadership roles with End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin. By mobilizing a network of advocates and survivors, he helped ensure passage of firearm safety legislation and fair housing bills, and secured historic increases in funding for domestic violence victims services in Wisconsin.

Motivated by his belief that ecological sustainability is the most critical issue of our time, Tony has also found ways to contribute to local environmental activism. He led 350 Madison, Inc.’s efforts to gain non-profit status and established a membership program to provide resources to the organization. In addition, he has assisted community groups in using legal processes to challenge harmful environmental decisions and policies.

Tony is originally from the Milwaukee area and is a lifelong Midwesterner. He and his wife, Sarah, enjoy long bike rides in the driftless region, spending summer evenings on the shores of Lake Monona, and discovering more and more places that make them love Wisconsin.
