He served as an officer in an army alpine infantry corps following his collegiate studies. He started his career at the age of 23, working in a family business established by his grandfather, Angelo, in 1927. He subsequently relocated to West Africa where he established his own business on the Ivory Coast, Ghana, and Cameroon. He pursued additional opportunities in West Africa and South America in the tropical wood industry and was then engaged in other manufacturing endeavors in Romania, Italy, Panama, and the Russian Federation.
Anna was born in Saint-Petersburg, Russia into a well-educated family with strong traditions. She attended university in Saint-Petersburg with a major in financial accounting and pursued her 25-year career as an accountant and senior financial officer. She has multiple international certificates in accounting.
Tonj and Anna met in Russia and were married there in 2016. They came to the US in 2017 when Tonj relocated here with TeMa. They have been living in Harpers Ferry and are building a house in Shepherdstown.
