Let’s build a brighter future together.

Smart Tourism for a Brighter Miami Beach

I support the next generation of Legacy Leaders in technology, the arts, culture, hospitality, and small business. It is time to attract the smartest and brightest minds of the world to travel, rest, play, host conferences and work in our city. The city requires a new type of tourism to attract new international businesses, events, cultural attractions that ushers in sustainable tourism.

Building Smarter Businesses with Entrepreneurs

Growing a digital & entrepreneur economy is key to our growth. It attracts new interests, generates new tourism, and create a new narrative for our city. This thriving community of tech entrepreneurs can further fill apartments, empty retail and shared office spaces. Our businesses and residences can further reflect that we are an international destination to both work and to enjoy our beaches.

Beautification for a Cleaner Vision of Now

With thousands of photos shared instantly worldwide from visitors and residents alike, comes a great opportunity for change and beautification. Currently, there are large portions of neglected alleys and sidewalks that have the potential. Let’s work together to create a picturesque behind the scenes by creating a “Green-Alley” initiative – improving our visual appeal block-by-block.

Smart Communication with Residents

I envision working together as a community to drive smart solutions for our residents. To improve the overall quality of life by providing smart real-time reporting for potential flooding, traffic, weather, and safety. Smart technology exists to make it easier to communicate concerns and share recent improvements in real-time.
