Leaving the engineering world, Anthony started his art and design career in 2007 and graduated with a product design degree from the College for Creative Studies in 2010. In February 2011, Anthony held his first art show to support his latest green energy idea, Strait Power, a shark-inspired method for improving the efficiency of fluid flow.
