Founder and General Manager
Born and raised in the South Bay of Los Angeles, Anthony has always had a special bond with this wonderful beachfront community. Growing up, he spent most of his days either at the beach or in his garage, playing music with his best friends.
He attended UC Santa Barbara, double majoring in both business and accounting. After graduation he moved back to his hometown of San Pedro, CA.
“I always loved its quaint, small town atmosphere and being close to family is extremely important to me.”
He worked for years managing operations of a medical equipment company but wanted something that would scream creativity.
At 27, he started his first business, Imagine Lighting Company, providing holiday lighting and decor for the local community. “I had the opportunity to meet so many new and interesting people, many of which we still work with today. That first season was so much fun, but everyone would ask, “What do you do the rest of the year?”. I really didn’t have much of an answer until one of my clients asked if I could fix the lights in his garden. He was really happy with his lighting during the holidays and It was the most gorgeous house. I just couldn’t say no.”
“The end results were absolutely breathtaking and caught notice in the neighborhood. From that point on, outdoor lighting became a passion.”
Anthony immersed himself in the industry and quickly developed a reputation for creating beautiful designs. He also spent countless hours researching and applying best installation practices, pairing gorgeous lighting with perfectly built systems.
“California Outdoor Lighting was created with one goal in mind. Design and build the very best outdoor lighting scenes in California, period.”
For over 15 years, Anthony has dedicated his life to two things. Building his business with integrity and his wonderful family.
“I can truly say that I absolutely love what I do! Lighting is my passion and I never want to stop learning. I’m also very blessed to have the most supportive wife and 4 amazing children! They are my light and hopefully I’m setting a good example.”
