Antonio describes himself as a “local guy”, attending grammar school, high school, and college all within a 10-mile radius of San Francisco and the Peninsula. He still lives on the Peninsula, and he and his wife are the proud parents of two daughters. His older daughter graduated from the University of San Francisco, while his younger daughter attends Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.

Antonio graduated from San Francisco State University with a BA in Economics and has over 25 years of industry experience. He has worked for various financial institutions, including multiple registered investment advisory firms.

Outside of the office, Antonio is passionate about sports, including watching and playing baseball, basketball, football, volleyball, and lacrosse. He enjoys rooting for both professional and amateur teams in the Bay Area. He is a volunteer coach for youth basketball and volleyball organizations. He is also a 3rd degree Knights of Columbus member for his local church, and a volunteer to help raise funds for people who have experienced various natural disasters, as well as events like clothing drives for those in need.

Antonio is currently studying to obtain his Series 65 securities license.
