The former outfielder retired in 2011, following nearly a decade of mostly stellar playing that was contrasted against injuries, trades and trips to the Minor League.

"My life's work," he says, "has become the reduction of athlete bankruptcy down to zero percent. As much as I want to be an agent that pushes the market appropriately, I also want my identity to be the anti-bankruptcy agent."
His goal is to better educate today's athletes, particularly those in Latin America, about life after sports, and this means educating himself as well.
