Raised in upstate New York, Anton proudly served in the United States Army with the elite 3rd Bn 75th Ranger Regiment and the Florida Army National Guard.
After his years of active service, he concentrated in servicing moving damage claims and furniture repair for a wide range of corporate companies.
Attendance at work-related conventions across the country eventually lead Anton to the field of insurance claims, particularly claims that involved damage to antiques caused by fire and water damage.
Consequently, Anton's passion in restoring and refinishing wood furniture, fixtures, and antiques was born: "I enjoy the look of 'shock and awe' on customers' faces when we've exceeded their expectations!" The level of care in antiques and furniture expanded to the need to restore isolated damage to kitchens. The demand for custom color matching existing cabinets and doors proved to be invaluable to the insurance industry especially when all others says that is cannot be matched. Anton has now called the TampaBay area his home for close to 20 years.
