As an experienced development writer and dedicated collaborator, Anthony enjoys thinking through powerful communications that help drive philanthropic success. He serves on Campbell & Company’s Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access Council, as well as the firm’s Online Fundraising team, helping to advance these initiatives within our firm and across the sector.

Prior to joining Campbell & Company, Anthony worked in the development office of Latinos Progresando, an immigration services nonprofit on Chicago’s Southwest Side. While there, Anthony led the creation of organizational content across print and digital platforms, including web copy, social media, and donor appeals. Anthony has also written for the University of Chicago’s Office of College Admissions and served as reader of prospective student applications.

Anthony is a proud honors graduate of the University of Chicago, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science. As a student, he was active in the University’s Little Red Schoolhouse Writing Program and was honored as an International House Collegiate Fellow. When away from the office, Anthony enjoys reading and writing fiction, hiking along the Long Island Sound in Connecticut, and ever-so-slightly improving his daily crossword puzzle times.
