Arizona Storytellers: Tony Felice
KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers series. We record the live events and share them with you on the radio. In Phoenix, the storytellers sometimes share stories about our community or the life events that have shaped them in general. Megan Finnerty is the creator of the series.
From a young age, Tony Felice wanted to be an actor. But when he was 29 years old, he found himself living on Park Avenue in New York and working as a marketing director. He was loving life and having fun. But then one day, as Felice puts it, he was facing middle age and wanted to pursue his dreams. So he left New York and champagne for Hollywood and ramen noodles. His first acting job was as a waiter on the TV show Lois & Clark.
Tony Felice is the president of Tony Felice PR and Marketing in Phoenix.
The next storytelling event is July 19, 2016, at the Mesa Arts Center's Piper Theatre.
