Anthony loves puzzles, brainteasers especially. He’s also a huge fan of Plants vs. Zombie Heroes, bachata, reggaeton, salsa (the music and the food), Ethiopian food, food in general, and the colors blue, yellow, and green. His favorite writers/thinkers are Junot Diaz, Audre Lorde, Chuck Palahniuk, Helen Fisher, and James Baldwin. He has a BA in rhetoric from UC Berkeley where he was a recipient of the IDEAL Scholars Award (a full-tuition merit-based scholarship), was inducted into the Golden Circle (an award for outstanding student leadership), and where he discovered his love for history.
