The domains of Business and media are where he has most experience but also has a background and practice in health, education, community, politics and law. After studying and qualifying with CITISERVICES and the University of Bristol, Anthony began a career in interpreting with the Deaf Community.
Anthony began working as a ‘live news interpreting’ in the early 1990’s before the BBC News Channel came into being. The BBC back then would show a simultaneous transmission of their BBC1 8am news programme, Breakfast on BBC2 for just 15 minutes each week day morning with an interpreter in vision. He was one of those interpreters. This opportunity came about because he was already an interpreter for the BBC’s then, flagship programme for Deaf and hard of hearing people, SeeHear.
