The best thing about working with the AMG team, for Anthony, is the diversity. There never is a dull moment, and he loves the opportunities that come his way. AMG does not want the team to conform to a mold. There are always opportunities to grow and come up with ideas outside of the box.
“It’s really cool all the new relationships I get to establish and all the people I’ve met. We’re always coming up with something new. Every week, there are new opportunities, new ideas. And it’s just the variety of opportunities that I love.” – Anthony Hogan
Call of Duty is his favorite game, and he has been playing it for more than 11 years. Not only does Anthony have an immense love for the game itself, but also the Call of Duty community. During the Covid-19 pandemic, just before Anthony started with AMG, he hit a rough patch and was about to lose his house. He reached out to the Call of Duty community, and they came together for him in a big way. Call of Duty teams, organization owners, pro players, fans, and everybody just chipped in and helped save his home.
”That was a genuinely fantastic time where the community just came together and helped my family and me in a big way.” – Anthony Hogan
“I’ve been playing Call of Duty almost since it started. I missed only one or two titles.” – Anthony Hogan
Anthony still plays his favorite game, Call of Duty, in his free time and still does a weekly podcast for it, talking about updates, pro players, esports, and whatever is going on in the scene at that moment. Anthony has three sons, aged 9, 12, and 13, and all three are gamers just like him!
“Be yourself, stay positive. Ask for help. And don’t give up on your dreams.” – Anthony Hogan
