Al is a Veteran and TJP Mentor. He received his Bachelor’s Degree from San Jose State University in Industry Relations and Psychology. He received his commission in the US Army Reserves as a 2nd Lieutenant through ROTC at San Jose State. He spent his active duty career at Fort Geo. G. Meade, MD. He left active duty in May 1969. He was promoted to Captain in the USAR in 1970 and resigned his commission in 1973.
After leaving active duty in 1969, Al held several sales positions over the next 44 years with national and international corporations focused on the specialty chemical and plastics industry.
Al heard about The Jonas Project from a friend over lunch one day. Al is semi-retired now, working as a consultant, which affords him more time to give back, especially to aspiring Veterans with a passion for starting their own business.
Al has trained and mentored 7-8 salespeople over the last 30 years, many who have gone on to own very successful businesses and have climbed the ladder of success within their companies. “I always found that extremely rewarding,” says Al.
Al lives in Fountain Valley, California.
