Anthony has two decades of experience as a facilitator and educator in ‘sustainability’, or what is now better referred to as regenerative development.

He features in a range of media nationally and internationally, is a regular speaker at conferences, festivals and a variety of organisations, and hosts public conversations with prominent Australian and international guests on regenerating the systems and stories humanity lives by, at both feature public forums and on Rescope Radio.

He was co-editor of Everyday Transcendence: The Influence of Frank Fisher (Australia’s Inaugural Environmental Educator of the Year), founding Editor of the Journal of Swinburne University’s National Centre for Sustainability, and his writing has appeared in publications locally and overseas, including The Conversation, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, WA Today, ABC Online, World Economic Forum, Eco-Business, EconoTimes, Business Standard, Resilience, The Epoch Times, Energy Post, Arena Magazine, Eureka Street and The Footy Almanac.

Anthony has worked with people from all walks of life, from executives to volunteers, postgraduate students to children, factory workers to fashion agencies, academics to artists, and corporates to community workers, along with defining experiences with Indigenous communities in Australia and Central America (winning a Prime Ministerial Award for service to the international community).

He is fluent in Spanish, and his qualifications include a Master of International and Community Development from Deakin University, a Graduate Certificate in Sustainability from Swinburne University of Technology, and a Bachelor of Business Systems from Monash University.
