Driven and determined, Mr. Wayne is a Passionate and Anointed individual who gives God the Glory in all he does. Anthony is backed by love and consistent encouragement from his family and his partner, Kendrell Bowman. He loves to open his heart and spirit through his work to be an Inspiration for others to push on to New Plateaus and Higher Heights, no matter what obstacles arise.
