Through sharing his personal story of challenges and triumphs, Tony delivers a perfectly structured guidebook on how to traverse the journey of embracing a disability to begin living a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life. The first book to explore the important and somewhat delicate relationship between Osteogenesis Imperfecta (Brittle Bone Disease) and fitness.
I have Type 1 Osteogenesis Imperfecta. This means I have brittle bones. I’ve broken my bones 70 times, I’ve had 12 surgical procedures and I have steel rods down all 4 long bones in my legs. I used a wheelchair when I was a kid, started using crutches in high school and took my first unassisted steps when I was 24 years old.
At 42, I thought I’d had a heart attack and was prompted to make some big changes. It was quite a journey as I navigated the delicate relationship between exercise and my brittle bones. But once I did, I realized how much I could help others get past their barriers!
I am committed to helping all those that desire to live an #UNBREAKABLE life achieve it.
Combining my passions for music, movement, and motivation has led to me writing my book, speaking at various events, and creating resources that will spread the message of the #UNBREAKABLE movement!

Tony is the author of Disable Your Disability, a book about learning how to live the healthy life you deserve despite your physical limitations. He was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (brittle bones) and has endured 70+ fractures throughout his life. At the ripe young age of 42, he had to embrace his disability to save his life, so against all odds, pushed himself through an 8-month physical transformation that ended up being just as important mentally and emotionally.
Tony also loves music. He’s been an emcee and DJ since the mid-80’s and has DJ’d professionally since 1996 (and continues to do so!). He’s created and released independent hip hop music, and found most of his success when he and his wife, Teemaree, released 3 albums as Dynamite Jive in the early 2000’s.
In addition to all this, Tony has worked professionally in the television/film industry since 2001, and created his own company, Egg Sandwich Media, to work as a one-man-production-band; wearing the hat of Producer all the way to Video Editor.
He currently lives in Detroit, MI with his wife and they enjoy their empty-nester life in the desert.
