Award-Winning Film

During the '22-'23 ski season, Tony set out to be the first black amputee to do a ski-jump backflip - with only one leg - on the slopes of Aspen, Colorado. His documentary film of this mind-boggling feat was given the prestigious Hayden Kennedy Award at the 5 Points Adventure Film Festival in 2023. Tony persevered, and he won.

You'll Want To Hear His Story >

I would HIGHLY recommend having Tony as a motivational/inspirational speaker at your conference. His story is so compelling and his positive/can-do attitude was a true inspiration for myself and the conference attendees. Tony was wonderful with interacting with attendees during and after his session. Cannot say enough good things about Tony.
