Miguel feb13

Miguel Guzmán, Bookkeeper:  Miguel is a Mathematics and Business Administration graduate from Saint Francis College in Biddeford, ME. Born in Puerto Rico but has lived most of his life in Colorado. He joined our staff family in 2012 and is a fabulous person to work with. His sense of humor and wit is constantly interfering with our work. So when you call and no one answers the phone, it’s because we’re rolling on the floor with laughter. Among his other interests: he loves to travel to far away and exotic places, photography (at which he’s is getting better), cooking and fortunately burning calories at the gym.
