Short Bio (In 150 words OR LESS, please describe what you’ve done since graduating from MCDS): 
 
After MCDS, I went on to study and play collegiate baseball at the University of Florida and the University of Tennessee. I graduated from Tennessee with a major in Sport Management and a double minor in Business and Chemistry. Post-graduation, I was drafted professionally by the Oakland Athletics, played for the Detroit Tigers and finished my career in Taiwan.
 
After 9 years of professional baseball, I retired and became a sports agent with Paragon Sports International. At Paragon, I negotiated multi-million-dollar contracts and numerous marketing deals. We represented amateur athletes for the draft and advised professionals through arbitration and free agent deals.
 
Currently I am a Real Estate Advisor at Compass with my business partner and fellow MCDS alumnus George Schechter ’98. We have collaborated to create GSD Advisors which is a division within Compass’ sports and entertainment sector. We also assist our clients with real estate transactions.

Please share one of your favorite moments, experiences, or memories from your time at Miami Country Day.
 
Where do I start? From Coach Sennett pouring hours of coaching into a very talented baseball team, to giving Ms. Sardina (Now Mrs. Sardina-Konen) a tough time during her first year at MCDS. There are too many memories to just pick one. Fast forward to my current involvement with the school as an Alumni Board member and an Athletic Steering Committee member, it has been wonderful to see the growth of the campus and the school as a whole.
 
What is one experience from MCDS that you’ve taken with you and have referred back to as a resource or guide in your adult life?
 
I have always had a sweet spot for MCDS and attribute my ability to persevere in school and on the field to my experiences at Country Day. Prior to becoming a student at MCDS, I was satisfied with “getting by” with A’s and B’s. But once I became a Spartan, I was immediately challenged in the classroom. I owe my work ethic to all the studying I had to do along with the teachers that pushed me to do better and are still teaching there today. The rare turnover at MCDS is amazing as well.

What advice would you offer future MCDS alumni?
 
Make sure you come back, visit, and connect with old teachers, friends, and colleagues. You may not realize it right when you graduate, but MCDS has a lot to offer through their extended family. Whether its job opportunities, business connections, or just plain networking, there are many great reasons to be involved with Country Day.
