More about Anthony:
My Values: Facilitating, Advocacy, Empathy, Generosity, Dependability, Creativity, Compassion, Positivity and Perseverance.
Things I love: Shadows, good questions, my grandmother’s cookies, coffee, movies that keep a shot on a character longer than it should, IG posts that have quotes from dogs like “hello Hooman”, old words like tarnation, my nieces, letters, walking around in circles on the farm, listening to a joke and confusing it for a story until the end.
