Bio: Anthony was born and raised in the Portland, OR metropolitan area and graduated from Aloha High School in 1990. He then went to college, obtained an (AA) Associates Degree from Clackamas Community College in 1992. While there he walked on to the baseball program and was fortunate enough to earn a spot on the roster. He met his wife Shannon shortly after and lives in Beaverton, OR with his son Dustin (18 yrs old) and daughter Hailey (14 yrs old). Anthony comes from a small business background. Being the owner of a small cabinet shop for 7yrs meant wearing many hats at all times. He was brought onto the Left Coast team to help with account management, customer service, and developing new accounts. He has been a part of Left Coast team for a little over a year and a half.
Something most people don’t know about you: I’m a huge Batman fan. Not the Batman from the 70’s TV show but the darker more mysterious Batman from the comic books and most recent films.
First Job: Busing tables at Roses Restaurant during High School.
Worst Job: I bucked hay for 1 day. It was the hardest work I’ve ever done.
Favorite Quote: “Nobody makes me bleed my own blood”
Pets: We have 2… Lily (our cat) and Peanut our dog who is part Chihuahua and part Dotson
Favorite Hobbies: Golfing, softball, running, pretty much anything that has to do with the outdoors or sports. Every year I do the Hood to Coast Relay or Cascade Lakes Relay.
Things I enjoy outside of work: Coming from a construction background, I still like to take on projects around the house. I find designing, building, and completing a project very satisfying.
Favorite Foods: Nothing better than a steak and baked potato and depending what restaurant…a blooming onion (Outback Steakhouse) or hand breaded onion rings from Country Kitchen…I’m making myself hungry.
Who inspires you: I would have to say my Grandma Alzo. She is 93 years old, legally blind, and one of the most loving and most positive people I have ever met or known.
