Mini Bio (1)

Born into the vibrant and cultural streets of Toronto, Canada, Al became engulfed into the eclectic culture. Raised in a Caribbean household, he was exposed to all types of music from gospel to reggae. His family was heavily involved in entertainment. His mother was an established well-known gospel singer in the Caribbean and his brother was a local MC and aspiring DJ that surrounded him with hip-hop, pop and fashion culture on a daily basis.

By the age of 8, Al was performing at various showcases from malls to concert halls showing off his new hosting, singing and rapping skills. He was even, earlier in his teens, a founding member and singer in his church choir. While taking an introductory course in radio broadcasting at a summer camp, Al's instructor heard his vocal talent and told him he had an idea. After some coaxing by his instructor, Al recorded his first demos at the tender age of 12. It included him singing, rapping and hosting a radio show as different characters by expanding his vocal abilities, various accents and speaking voices.

By the time Al was a teen he had performed on stages several times as a singer, rapper and actor. His skills were deep rooted in the very skillful world of "live performance". At the beginning of it all Al had found his first love in entertainment, radio. This love took him to hosting various formats of radio, throughout his young life, from commercial to internet. It developed his vocal conducting abilities to shine at hosting everything from urban talent showcases to television. This skill brought him to his current livelyhood, acting. Performing in stage theatre, on television shows, as well as feature films has been a great fruition of the skills this versatile entertainer has honed over the years.
