Tony came to BASILE Studio 11 years ago as an accomplished carpenter and craftsman and immediately worked his way up to the shop management team, where he has contributed his sharpened skills and consistently cheerful demeanor on a daily basis ever since. Handling all processes of fabrication at each level of production including schematic, prototyping, and final fabrication, Tony is adept at steadily devising straightforward and effective solutions to the most challenging production assignments.

Best part of being at BASILE:
Driving around town with my wife and kids, showing them the buildings we create. My kids are fascinated with them, and ask lots of questions. It’s a great source of pride to be part of creating them, and sharing them with my family. Plus, it’s like a 2nd family here, and I love working with my niños.

Favorite architecture or design anywhere:
I love the unique shapes of the buildings that Frank Gehry designs. I want to build one in my backyard!


Classic Rock. It’s usually what’s on at the shop, so when I get in my car at the end of the day I end up gravitating back to it.

Hawaii! The weather, the beach, the tropical drinks…
