Having grown up in the north of England, Anthony attended university in Sheffield where he graduated with a B.Sc in Hospitality Management. His love of travel took him to Upstate New York where he managed a British Pub for nearly two years. On his return to the UK he moved to Islington, London and worked for an independent residential lettings agency. During the next 12 years he worked with Copping Joyce which had 5 Central London offices and from there with the internationally-renowned Chestertons agency. His desire to explore Asia and the Americas prompted a lengthy sabbatical during which he travelled extensively across these regions.
