Tony Pallone comes to us from a background as an art director/designer and writer for the Times Union, the largest daily newspaper in Albany. There aren’t a lot of things that don’t interest him, and he has written about the visual and performing arts, travel, and a host of other topics. He’s a graduate of Union College in Schenectady, which is known for its strong engineering program; he trusts that you won’t hold it against him for getting his degree in political science. He also has a background as an educator in a wide range of contexts. As if that’s not enough, Tony is an award-winning stage actor and director, and is often liable to hand you a flier for some show he’s appearing in (just humor him).
