  • Also in 2023, while working with a Montreal-based restaurant, he created a cocktail list to be served in commemoration of the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix.
  • Tony has traveled to various locales in North America and Europe to learn about and indulge in the traditional foods and histories of the areas.


Tony has been writing in either an artistic or professional setting since 2013, earning academic praise as well as national publication for some of his works. Tony also has a deep knowledge of the service industry, having worked in several restaurants across Canada for nine years. This gave him a thorough understanding of the food industry, from the unglamorous job of a beginner busboy to creating unique promotions alongside owners of high profile establishments. These experiences, combined with his love of history and culture, has given Tony a special interest in the integral role food plays in people's lives. He loves to uncover the stories that can be gleaned from exploring the minutiae of food and drink and the customs surrounding them.


Tony is currently concluding his bachelor's degree (honors) in English and creative writing at Concordia University in Montreal.
