Al made his first “life-pivot” in 1998 when he moved from the Detroit auto industry (electrical engineer + developer) to being the 2nd employee and equity owner at a San Diego startup which was later acquired. He’s been involved with startups ever since, and his career has taken him down the business path.
He’s also founded two companies, sold one, raised money from both VCs and angels, and is a graduate of both TechStars and The Founder Institute. He was most recently the CEO of Email Copilot which was acquired by Return Path, and is now the VP of Data and Analytics at Seismic.
He’s got a loving wife, a son, a dog, a beach volleyball addiction, and a startup that keep him (in)sane!
