Alex approaches business with the same dedication and passion he did baseball. He wants to win, really crush, in his work as he did in the majors.

Barry Sternlicht, Chairman of Starwood Capital Group


Alex was truly OUTSTANDING on stage during the moderated Q & A. One of the best I’ve seen in my nearly 20 years in this business!

Organizers of AJCC


Alex far exceeded my already high expectations! The feedback from the students in the second hour of class was extraordinarily positive about Alex’s talk. Alex was so intelligent - way beyond any law or other degree could provide - yet he was remarkably humble and down to earth at the same time.
