He trained personnel on nuclear, biological and chemical operations.

Miguel is a graduate of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and the FBI Academy, and he earned a Bachelor of Applied Science (Computer Science, Information Systems Management) from the University of Maryland European Division.

Miguel’s varied skills and interests make him especially suited to contribute to the overall elevation of A&O as a modern security company. His skills include training, management, investigative techniques, firearms proficiency, communication, organization, and computer proficiency.  He is experienced with sophisticated investigative techniques and equipment such as CCTV, GPS, trackers, recorders, sensors, and others.  A bilingual English and Spanish speaker, he has a special interest in Western horse and horse reining discipline.

Frank Keller, founder and CEO of A&O, expressed his gratitude for Miguel’s exceptional qualifications.  “We feel so fortunate to have a person of Miguel’s skills, experience, and work ethic join our company as head of The Woodlands Township operation.  He brings renewed energy and innovation to our mounted security work there.”
