Anthony focuses on room acoustics and its integration into architectural design of renovations to existing auditoria, new performing arts facilities, and academic institutions. His consulting experiences encompass programming through construction and the acoustical tuning of performance spaces. Anthony’s education and experience allows him to balance the science in acoustics with the art in architecture.

He approaches every project with an open mind–learning about the program, user context, architectural vision and budget that are unique to each project. Consulting goes beyond communicating recommendations informed by these factors and extends to collaboration with the design team and owner/user group to develop and implement comprehensive solutions.

Anthony has given lectures on acoustics design at USITT, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Illinois Institute of Technology, Rice University, and the University of Houston.
