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.

Miami, a modern, contemporary city

Miami, a modern, contemporary fast paced

Being from Miami I always forget that this city is perhaps one of the most modern, contemporary cities in the entire country. Sometimes it seems everything here is made in that style of design. From little small redecorated buildings on Miami Beach to large new condo developments on the river downtown, beach, and Coral Gables, it seems everyone is making the switch to this dynamic and ever increasing style of design. I have taken pictures around the city at various examples one in particular, a friend of mine's downtown apt in Miami is very stunning but that not the reason I am bringing it up. I am bringing it up because many things in there used separately would not qualify for modern, contemporary design status, however shown together and in the form that they are displayed, we definitely can call this Apt a Modern, Contemporary gem....

Enjoy the pictures below from Miami...
