Having been classically trained for 12 years and being a piano instructor for 3 years, Tony finally decided to release a music EP album in 2018 called Fairytale Solstice based on songs he’s written and recorded over the years. 

His music can be found on Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon Music, Spotify, and other major music playing services.

Escape Room

An escape room is a team-based activity where a group of individuals are given a fixed time period to follow a narrative, solve puzzles, and “escape” from the room.

As an avid fan of puzzle solving and escape rooms, Tony and his close friends joined together to open their own escape room in Irvine, CA called UNLOCKED. Currently, the location has one themed game called the Return of the Magician and is inspired by Tony’s former experience as a magician.
