Tony received an associates in Architectural Construction technologies at Illinois Central College in Peoria, Illinois in 1991 and a Bachelors in Landscape Architecture from the University of Illinois in Urbana/Champaign in 1994. Upon graduation, Tony moved to Chicago to begin his career with an award-winning landscape architecture design-build firm located in the North Shore. He gained 10 years of invaluable experience at this company prior to co-founding Culliton Quinn Landscape Architecture Workshop in 2004.
Tony thoroughly enjoys the design process with every project as each client brings a unique experience to the firm. His biggest enjoyment comes when a design grows into reality and the client or group of users first react with the firm’s newly built project. While collaborating with his partner on each project, Tony has found that successful design comes from careful listening to the client’s overall goals, thorough research, whether historic or modern, and just pure passion for creative design solutions.
