Antonio was born and raised in Houston, Texas. After being cast in on several projects in his home state, he decided it was time for that long drive to Hollywood. Alone, he arrived in LA on August 31, 1997, the same day the world heard the breaking news that Princess Diane had died tragically. Adapting to his new surroundings became a great challenge for the bilingual actor. He never gave up and through all of his perseverance, he was deservingly cast in such TV shows such as: "Caroline In The City", "Port Charles" and "General Hospital." In addition, Antonio has appeared on various novellas (Spanish soap operas) shot in both Miami and Mexico City. Although LA isn't known for its theatre, Antonio's heart yearned for the stage. So, after being cast as Norvel the comedic police officer in The Beverly Hills Playhouse production of "Class Reunion", Antonio knew he was home. Roles in the blockbuster film "The Price of the American Dream" as Detective Reyes and as Luis Rodriquez in the hit Spanish film "Entre Llamas" A.K.A. "Into The Flames" (official selection of the Cannes and Sundance Film Festivals) solidified Antonio's place in Hollywood. The later film, Antonio wore a few different hats as he was not only talent (as well as performing his own stunts) - he was also the casting director. A few years ago, Antonio appeared in the role of a fanatical killer in the independent feature "Thrill of the Kill" and a starring role as Carlos in the short film "Con Amor Para Mi Padre." Over the years, he's been involved with fundraising for AIDS, Leukemia and Breast Cancer Research. His actor training includes Margie Haber, Bobbie Shaw Chance, the John Sarno Studios and the University of Houston (Theatre Arts).
