Antoine (Tony) Skinner was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where his love for the arts began at an early age. As a child, he attended a music elementary school where he had the opportunity to play in the jazz band along with the late great, Grover Washington. As Tony grew older, his love for the arts expanded to include photography. He currently has over 12 years experience with portrait, wedding, fashion, and landscape photography.
Tony attended West Virginia University where he played football with the Mountaineers for two years. He graduated in 2001 with his Bachelor’s in Journalism, with an emphasis in Public Relations and a minor in Sociology. After working in banking for six years, Tony relocated to Arizona from Pennsylvania in June 2013 to join US Bank as a Branch Manager in the Central Phoenix area. Tony currently manages the US Bank North Scottsdale Branch.
Through his experiences in the church, the Boy Scouts of America, and as a member of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., Tony has learned that giving back to the community is always a priority. Over the years, he has participated in many community and environmental service projects as well as led a large inner city mission project in Philadelphia. Tony currently serves as a Unit Commissioner for the Boy Scouts of America – Grand Canyon Council and is a member of the Alumni chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
Tony and his wife, Kenosha, both attend North Phoenix Baptist Church and are very excited about their future here in the Phoenix area.
