- Education: Florida International University (BBA)
- Course of Study: I started at FIU with a baseball scholarship, but once I realized that my fastball did not cross home plate as it once did, I shifted to an academic focus. I chose accounting since to be successful you need both common sense and a knack for numbers.
- Most Don’t Know: I am an avid collector of Cuban and Latin American art. I have more than 50 original pieces, mainly Cuban masters.
- Wish List: I hope that one day I will be able to meet our Holy Father the Pope.
