Tony Ozzauto grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago and attended Columbia College to study Television Production and Theatre. Whilst there his instincts told him to leave school and move to California. In the first month of moving, he took a job with a production company which led him to travel through Europe for several months filming and a further six years of work, before deciding to switch to live television. Tony then became News Director of a financial television station, producing two local talk shows.
After moving back to Chicago, Tony continued to thrive, winning several International Television Awards for producing corporate television programs.
At the age of 58, Tony decided to make a career change and enroll in cosmetology school. After graduating he teamed up with a company to travel the country performing on stage at trade shows and teaching seminars. Tony currently teaches cosmetology in a western suburb.
At the age of 63, Tony again made some radical changes in his life. These changes opened up his world which allowed him to see things differently. These changes have opened his mind and talents to write and tell stories about his experiences.
