Active Minds Speaker
In March 2020, Anthony launched Evolving Minds, a mental health nonprofit with a mission to create a culture of care.
Anthony has developed innovative mental health at work programs that center community, connection and culture-building, for nonprofit professionals, educators, social impact organizations and retail workers. He has also designed mental health programs for students.

Anthony has trained over one thousand program graduates, and his programs have demonstrated compelling impact – including an over 30% reduction in symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress, a 50% reduction in absenteeism (employee call outs) and an 89% increase in empathy.
With Evolving Minds, he is committed to building a caring work culture. To make that commitment a reality, he has instituted four-day work weeks, protected weekly time to practice resilience skills such as gratitude, joy and mindfulness, and established clear work boundaries with technology, with no work or work messages on the weekends.
He currently is a professional speaker with Active Minds, one of the country’s leading mental health nonprofits. He sits on the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility Committee and Board of Directors for Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme), a nationally renowned mindfulness nonprofit. He is also a founding equity team member of Vitalize Care, a Y Combinator-backed start-up, where he designed one of the largest healthcare specific mindfulness learning curricula in the digital mental health space.
His work has been featured in Mental Health America’s Workplace Mental Health Toolkit and Mindful Magazine, and he was selected for the 2022 Rising Terp Alumni Excellence Award by the University of Maryland.
Recently, he was showcased in the Change the World Exhibit by the Do Good Institute for his organizing efforts as a student, where he launched a campus-wide campaign, #30DaysTooLate, to address the inaccessibility of mental health resources on campus. This campaign inspired the University of Maryland to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in mental health infrastructure.
He is a graduate of Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield’s two-year Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program, and holds a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Maryland.
