Tony Bartolotti


With an eye for detail and a creative insight, Tony’s marketing history spans over 27 years working with a wide range of businesses creating and implementing successful “branded” ad campaigns. Tony loves his work (in fact we can’t get him to go home) but when he’s not working he’s spending time with his wife and two sons. He’s an avid collector who you’ll find surfing eBay adding to his classic Star Trek and vintage Comic collections. In his early years he spent his time as an artist creating portraits and illustrations as well as a professional musician touring, recording and “knocking elbows” with some of rock and roll’s greatest. Tony lives his life with his philosophy of “Life = Perception”…everything in life depends on how you look at it.
