Tony Caine, current appearance notwithstanding, was a beautiful baby. He grew up in Queens, NY, and went to college upstate where he got a degree in psychology. After serving time in corporate America designing computer systems, he settled in Berkeley doing electronic consulting, comedy improvisation and scuba diving. After moving to Albany in 1983, he served as chairman of the Albany/Berkeley Mental Health Board for two years and chairman of the Albany Charter Review Committee for 10 years. He also served as chair of the Mayor's Committee on Adult Day Health Care and founded the Albany/Berkeley Independent Elders Network intended to help seniors remain in their homes as long as possible.
He was also a founder of the Berkeley Dispute Resolution Service (now called SEEDS ) where he still occasionally mediates. He was also a founder and early chair of Citizens for the Albany Shoreline. Along the way, he has also done photography and reporting for the Albany Journal and Berkeley Voice and served as official photographer of the Solano Stroll. For the last 15 years he has run a software and consulting company ARCaine Technology .
