CIVIC EFFORT I am a trustee at the University of Miami and St. Thomas University and on the board of Big Brother Big Sisters of America, among other organizations. However, my passion lies with the United Way of Miami-Dade, where I am chairman of the board this year.
SOMETHING SURPRISING My first job was at a Carvel ice cream store in Miami when I was 14.
