“I love life and I love this moment right here! Right now!”
Tony is one of the 16 High Fives Athletes that are highlighted in the Reno-Tahoe International Airport DepARTures gallery exhibit!
A C4-5 quadriplegic as the result of the spinal cord injury suffered at a beach where he grew up, and currently battling Syringmyelia, Tony’s tenacious surf/skate/ski DNA has pushed him through all sorts of obstacles and has lead him into an endlessly surprising and beautiful life.
Tony was bitten hard by the bi-ski bug when he hooked up with the folks over at Disabled Sports USA – Far West at Alpine Meadows and the stoke hasn’t subsided. With assistance from Winter Empowerment Fund, he looks to really push things forward in his skiing. You can follow Tony at www.fasterbarnacle.com where he writes about life, skiing, music and whatever else scratches his soul.
