Meet Spiro·naut Antonio (Tony) Vasquez, Interactive Project Manager on our Event Operations team! Tony is a technology enthusiast that uses his resourceful problem-solving skills to “Swiss army knife” his way through roadblocks & challenges to help execute visionary experiences.  

With a can-do attitude & a creative spirit, Tony brings the heat to the events industry & the grill top. So, grab the barbeque sauce, turn on your favorite ‘80s movie & get to know Tony! 

What superpower do you bring to work? 

My superpower is the ability to “Swiss-Army knife” my way through situations. I’m not afraid to step outside of my comfort zone, utilize my knowledge & help the team execute/set ideas in motion.  

How do you refine and sharpen your skills?  

I refine my skills by keeping up with trends in new technologies. I had the opportunity to go to CES 2023 this past January in Las Vegas, the mecca of the tech industry. I felt like I was in Nirvana while I was there! 

What excites you about your work & our industry? 

One day you are creating budgets, the next you’re working on deliverables & timelines for 3D motion graphics, all while simultaneously building on processes and SOPs. Every day is something new & I love how our team collaborates! 

What’s the coolest thing you’ve done or place you’ve visited?  

I was able to watch & listen in on the Zoom interviews for the Super Bowl LV (2020-2021) Media Day for both the Kansas City Chiefs & the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It was pretty cool to see the behind-the-scenes production for the NFL players, including Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes! I also have screenshots of the Zoom calls with my picture to "flex" about it. LOL! 

What makes Spiro™ stand out from other agencies? 

Spiro values creativity & authenticity. With these two important values, we create an environment for all employees to feel validated & supported so that they can innovate & try new things.  

What’s an interesting fact that people may be surprised to learn about you? 

Growing up in Texas, I learned how to smoke & grill different kinds of meat. My favorite woods to smoke with are hickory & oak, although I have used applewood as well for pork shoulders & chops. I also have a Webber grill that I occasionally use if I miss that charcoal flavor. Currently, I am looking to add a Kamado or Green Egg smoker to the arsenal.  

What else would you like to share from your world?  

My other hobbies & interests include listening to Hi-Res (FLAC) music, trail biking, watching movies & television shows in the decade of 1980. I have a family which includes two kids Sophia (age 12), Oliver (age 9) & my wife (who never ages)!  

I have killer dad jokes & memes, I work out on my “dad bod,” I like Texas Longhorns football & enjoy reading.
