Anthony is a Registered and Qualified British Sign Language Interpreter who has worked in the Deaf community for 27 years. The domains of business and media is where he has the most experience but he is also experienced in health, education, community, politics and law.
Anthony said "I started to work as a 'live news interpreter' 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. I was one of those interpreters. This opportunity came my way because I was already an interpreter for the BBC's then, flagship programme for Deaf and hard of hearing people, SeeHear."
