He manages a team of creatives here in SLO County and in places like Los Angles and New York.  Due to COVID-19, their offices have been closed. So, Miguel appreciates the opportunity to rent a space right here in downtown Atascadero that provides needed workspace so he can continue to engage with his clients and team members.
