Dr. Anthony Michael DiGiorgio is the founder and current manager of the EKL franchise Oligodendrocyte. He is also the creator and commissioner of Epic Keeper League. He spends his spare time doing brain surgery.
DiGiorgio was born in Palm Springs, CA and grew up in Novato, CA, about 20 miles north of San Francisco. He grew up an avid San Francisco Giants fan. He attended Marin Catholic High School with fellow EKL owners Matt Foge, Nader Sherafat, Sean Bertrand, Garth Hall, Nico Stamets and Adam Vargas. He went to college at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he became roommates with Vargas and Jacob Rosales. It was there that he also met Bobby Rodrigues.
After college, DiGiorgio moved to Davis, CA and began working for Active Diagnostics, Inc, a company that provided intraoperative neuromonitoring. Fellow EKL owner Robert Kranz was hired a year after DiGiorgio. EKL was formed the following year, after DiGiorgio had moved to Sacramento, CA.
DiGiorgio began medical school in the fall of 2008 at Touro University in Vallejo, CA. It was in medical school that he would bring home his first EKL championship. He graduated medical school in June of 2012 and moved to New Orleans, LA to begin his residency in neurosurgery at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center. His second EKL championship was won during his second year of residency.
