For 30 years, Tony was employed as a retail business executive. At the end of that first career, he was responsible for the operation of 10 retail stores with 1,400 employees and annual sales of $ 140 million dollars. During the last 14 years of that career, he developed a computer hobby that eventually involved online information systems. After his first retirement, he and a friend turned their hobby into a commercial enterprise and became one of the first Internet Service Providers (ISP) in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. They later purchased two competitors and the company grew successfully and profitably, while establishing a highly respected reputation. In mid 2000 they sold the business and Tony retired for a second time.
