Toronto’s Most Eligible Bachelor: Anthony!
Anthony describes himself as a “huge nerd and dreamer” who lives everyday like it’s his last. He believes that everything starts from the inside, and lives it through a disciplined routine that includes regular meditation and journaling.
“I can live free of fear and hesitation, because I don’t take being alive for granted, and make intentional time everyday to re-orient myself with my values and goals. We can all put out a little light into the world – at work or in relationships – if our internal state is at peace. I’ve moved across the planet, and sometimes have some ambiguity with my identity, but at the end of the day, I’m able to constantly remind myself of who I am and what really matters.”
Anthony maintains a consistently active lifestyle, including yoga, kickboxing, and recreational soccer.
“I rarely discuss this aspect of my life, even with my friends. I think it’s because those are things I do almost purely for enjoyment and health – literally for survival and mental/physical well being, so I sort just of do it and get on with the rest of my life. I believe in dreaming big and being fearless in every aspect of life. I believe our fears are what we tell them to be. And we all hold the keys to our own happiness, no matter our circumstances. We’re our best selves when our status quo is not controlled by externalities, but rather, the result of our own actualization and realization.”
Anthony did his studies in software engineering, and has spent the past few years building products at tech startups in Toronto.
“What I love most about about my work is that it allows me to have the space to take a problem, and turn it into a coherent solution, usually in the form of an app/software that creates value for the users, and the business. And I’m able to use a wide range of hard skills and soft skills everyday. That’s what really gets me excited on my way to the office. And my morning playlist too, of course. It’s hot fire.”
