This is Tony. His quote above says it all. People around here know him as "Mr. Get Downtown" - which is pretty easy to see from his rap video below.
I was looking for a sharp dressed "businessman" for my next portrait and I thought of Tony, who I already knew, but it was still pretty fun to interview him and learn more about his approach to life.
He fills every day up with just enough things to overbook a week in my world. Running the show at the Holiday Inn downtown, hosting his own radio show, playing gigs with the boys from The House Band, and emceeing local events are just a few things you may find Tony doing around the Burg.
He spent most of his younger days raising a family and working to support them, and now, in his early 50's, with the kids older and off to school, he's squeezing every last minute out of every waking hour.
Which is why this quote certainly sums up the man, in my opinion: "In between the opening curtain and the closing curtain of each day, I got to put on a show."
