Whilst studying at college, Tony was first introduced to the world of DIY music and once he had a taste for it, he knew that was the career he wanted to pursue. Now, he is the CEO of DIY Media Group; a collective of innovative companies aiming to make it easier for creators to distribute and monetise their work.
