Anthony Gilardi was born and raised in the North End of Boston. His best memories are of Sunday mornings at his Nana's house learning the correct way to cook meatballs. While making a living as a master carpenter, his outlet became the neighborhood street corners and playgrounds, which provided a perfect stage to entertain people with impressions of his favorite actors and acting out scenes from his favorite movies.
Anthony has always felt that carpentry is an art form not unlike acting, "creating something special from the material you are given." At the tender age of 22, he formed a successful general contracting company, Gilardi Enterprises.
Following his heart, he moved to Hollywood in 2001 to pursue a career in acting. "They can't love me if they can't see me," he explains. Of course, he remembered to bring his tool belt along with him on his journey. "I was always told to learn a trade so I would have something to fall back on. The irony of becoming the on-air carpenter for the HGTV hit show Myles of Style blows my mind!" Hard work and dedication paid off.
On a final note, Anthony would like to add, "It can't be all business. You need to enjoy the ride, realize the ups and deal with the downs. And remember to fry your meatballs; nobody likes them soggy. You were right, Nana. I miss you."
