Man Looking at Fog


Hi. My name's Alexander Rodriguez. I'm the behind-the-scenes guy running the adminsitrative side of things around here. I'm a recent graduate of the University of New Mexico, where I majored in economics and minored in philosophy. I worked my way through college as a special education tutor for kids with autism, a bakery delivery driver, and as a laborer with a moving company.


Here at Cuento, I'm putting my education and skills to use as Accounting Manager. When I'm not at the office, I enjoy long-distance running on the many excellent trails in the southern Rocky Mountains, playing drums in a rock band, reading, exploring restaurants and breweries, and volunteering.
