With well over a decade of experience in tech, media, speaking and coaching aspiring entrepreneurs and students from underserved groups, he has developed a thoroughly different world view. Anthony shares with listeners and readers that success isn't something external, it comes from within. You can create your own luck, no matter your background or lack of experience.
In USA Today, Anthony was described as a "Translator" for his ability to relate and inform communities that are largely excluded. Anthony finds the common threads between lessons he learned in the hard streets of Newark, NJ to the innovative clusters of Silicon Valley. Anthony serves as the entrepreneur in residence of Newark Venture Partners, a fund backed by Audible/Amazon. He helps to attract innovative tech startups to Newark and incubate promising talent locally.
The author of the critically acclaimed "Don't Dumb Down Your Greatness: A Young Entrepreneur's Guide to Thinking & Being Great", Frasier's motivational blueprint for young entrepreneurs of color has spread globally. His successes include AT&T, BET, Fast Company, TEDx, and The Congressional Black Caucus to name a few. Most notably Frasier was profiled in the CNN hit documentary "Black in America 4: The New Promised Land - Silicon Valley", which aired to over 1 million viewers and helped accelerate the national conversation about diversity in tech. Prior to Silicon Valley Anthony cofounded The Koalition, one of the first online video game publications for African Americans, and worked passionately as a journalist for several years.
