Yet another one of Krypton’s last son’s, Tony grew up in a small town not too far from Dallas, Texas. Being a lover of all things games, a good part of his childhood was spent mastering Mortal Kombat techniques and perfecting Fatalities, yet he always made time for artistic endeavors such as singing, acting and playing in rock bands. Tony graduated from the University of North Texas in Music Performance for Double Bass. He freelanced in the DFW area and taught privately for several years. During this time, he discovered the benefits a smartphone could make in his line of work, being able to respond to gig offers in a timely manner and navigate to performances with GPS, all while on the go. He did months of research, finally deciding on the Android OS. And the reason you ask? Emulators. The fact that he now had a phone, GPS system, instant messenger, mp3 player, camera and 4 different videogame consoles with 100+ games, all in a single device, was mind blowing. Tony’s new love for Android blossomed rather quickly into an obsession that landed him a job with Sprint. He now gets to play with all kinds of phones, fix them and write about them for Talk Android.
