Tony was born in Italy in the small village of Faeto within the province of Foggia which is part of the region of Puglia. Tony emigrated to the United States with his mother, father and sister in 1970, settling in Rochester, New York.
Tony graduated from Greece Olympia High School in 1980 and received a BS in business administration from Nazareth College in Pittsford, NY in 1984. Coincidentally, Nazareth College is right around the corner from Top Notch Monogramming!
Tony's hobbies and passions include reggae music, soccer, and being the owner and operator of Top Notch Monogramming. Tony is a huge fan of the US national soccer team and has traveled all over the world to watch them play over 40 times and counting. Being a lover of reggae music, Tony has incorporated some of the ideals of that musical genre within Top Notch monogramming, including the colors associated with reggae (red, gold and green), and also the lion mascot.
In March of 2008, Tony added Michele Griswold to the Top Notch Monogramming family. Michele has since become an integral part of Top Notch Monogramming through her personable and professional rapport with the customers, her handling of in-store duties and her embracing of the Top Notch philosophy. Michele is now an invaluable asset for Top Notch Monogramming.
