Alex Daoud has lived his entire life in the South Beach area of Miami Beach, Florida. Boxing was one of his favorite childhood hobbies. Working out at the famous Fifth Street Gym during its heyday, Alex trained under the legendary Angelo Dundee and did roadwork with the likes of Muhammad Ali and other world champions.
Alex attended the University of Tampa, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Literature, then received his Juris Doctor degree from Northern Illinois University before returning to his home of Miami Beach to begin practicing law. The blight that plagued South Beach at this time was shocking, and before long Alex found himself caught up in the tumultuous world of city government in an effort to rejuvenate the city of his birth.
Still living in Miami Beach, Daoud manages luxury rental properties in South Beach. Aside from his professional duties, Daoud desperately wants to help those who may be experiencing similar problems that plagued the former mayor for so many years.
"I publish my phone number and email address in the book,” Daoud said. “My number was always listed when I was mayor. I still want to be able to help, to give people someone that can talk to about problems they are having. That federal trial I went through was a nightmare, and I don't want to see anyone else go through that."
