Anthony was a member of the 2014 NYC Urbana Slam Team which placed 2nd at the 2014 National Poetry Slam, as well as the 2013 Urban Word Slam Team which placed 3rd internationally at the Brave New Voices Festival.

Anthony has performed at numerous venues, including the United Nations, Nuyorican Poets Café, Symphony Space, Lincoln Center, and the Apollo Theatre.

Anthony’s poetry touches on childhood, family, and the ever-changing world around him.
