About Alexander Calzadilla

Alexander Calzadilla is a Cuban male originally from Philadelphia, who has happily called Miami his home since moving here at the age of 15. He attended Southwest Sr. High School and Florida International University, ultimately receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. While in college, he began working as a paralegal for the Law Offices of Jeffrey E. Reichenbacher, a position he kept for seven years after graduation. He subsequently worked at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius Associates before landing at Costa Nursery. After distinguishing himself with many accomplishments, he was promoted to the position of Director of Specialty Products, which included the orchid, bonsai and lucky bamboo departments. When Alex was first put in charge of the three departments, they ranked near the bottom. By the time he left Costa after seven years, Alex had transformed the floundering departments into unqualified successes, posting record earnings, sales and profitability. In 2008 Alex was named the Costa Employee of the Year. Alex now puts his formidable prowess as a businessman into his newest venture, Avant-Garde Home Furnishings, LLC, serving as Managing Partner.

Beauty comes in unexpected places....

Sometimes the nicest things 
hide the unexpected

I saw this in an article I was reading and just had to share. Its a trash compost that also is not only modern, contemporary, but a very nice piece to look at and use as home decor, instantly transforming any room into a futuristic looking, like something you would see on Star Trek or one of those type shows. Don't believe me just read the following post.
the indoor green alternative to 
traditional compost heaps

Our homes dispose of a huge amount of organic waste, old foods which could easily be recycled by ourselves. Eva is a green and exciting eco-friendly alternative to traditional compost heap methods, designed by innovative French product designer Francois Hurtaud, who lives in Shanghai. 

Eva is a self-contained biosphere homefarm system, which not only allows you to cultivate vegetables but also produces fresh air and light. It is designed to be quickly assembled and maintained, making it mobile and easy to set up anywhere. 

One part of the waste is recycled to grow food and the other part produces methane, which is then transformed into energy, thanks to the co-generator. Once this energy is obtained it then produces light which stimulates the growth of the plants. 

The water, as it enters the container, is naturally filtered. The whole process can be viewed in the diagrams below, and the interior settings show how stylish and modern they look in contemporary interiors, giving a futuristic aspect to room. 

As I said, sometimes we find beauty in unexpected places...Please see pictures below
