Anthony is a software engineer at Google. Raised in Compton as a foster kid after suffering physical and sexual abuse, he taught himself how to program computers at age 8 and started his career as an INROADS intern.

Perhaps best known for his Huffington Post article entitled Google Would Never Hire a Person Like Me, he is a frequent public speaker at schools and other student organizations. He was recently awarded the INROADS Trendsetter Award for his work promoting diversity in tech.

Anthony graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a bachelor's degree in Computer Science. His GPA was horrible, so don't ask.
