My name is Anthony Downey and I've been interpreting professionally since 1998. My skills began to develop in childhood when practicing with my Deaf brother, Lanny. Later, I attended and graduated from the Interpreter Training Program at Wilson Technical Community College in North Carolina. Currently licensed and nationally certified as an interpreter/transliterator, I have thoroughly enjoyed associating with and learning from Deaf/Hard of Hearing, and the Deaf/Blind community.

I established Clear Message Interpreting Service, Inc. in 2003 as a means to provide skilled interpreters to those clients in need of our services. We are currently a team of over 100 interpreters, transliterators and spoken language translators primarily providing services in North Carolina, but expanding across the country to serve our clients anytime, anywhere!

Our mission at Clear Message Interpreting Service, Inc. (CMIS) is to meet and satisfy the communication needs of individuals who require auxiliary aid and services. We offer skilled and qualified Sign Language and Spoken Language interpreters and translators for your needs. We perform these services as courteous professionals and in the spirit of the presenter.
