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.

They are modern, contemporary, and have a young hip crowd making them two of the most trendy and young cities in the United States. Enjoy the following pictures of Downtown Miami.

Stuning beauty in the Florida Sunshine... Miami and Miami Beach are two of the most beautiful, newest cities in the world. There architecture is reflective of the current times and follows all the latest trends in designs, high fashion, and the latest cars. They are indeed trendy world class cities where there are plenty of good looking people but rarely do you find people with a good heart. They are cities that are more surface then roots but at least we can enjoy these pictures as they are absolutely beautiful to look at..
