About Al

The late Steve Jobs believed that "you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards." My dots which took me through a career in investment banking and my own mixed bag of failed and successful startups has now led me to turn my back on what was an enjoyable medical career to pursue this amazing and exciting opportunity.

I am a product of the Caribbean and Latin American community, I have been blessed over the years with success that has come through trial and error; built some very deep connections politically and within the business community, which has continued to keep me grounded and attached to my heritage.

Ecommerce is a 1.22 trillion dollar industry and Latin America and Caribbean still remains virgin territory with projected growth to 2018 of 204%. Yet, none of this stirs my passion as much as the prospects of changing lives for the better, reshaping the commercial and economic landscape through the creation of a new economic reality for the hardworking citizens of that region.

I believe that the success of this venture is reflective of the quality of the team behind the vision. If you have a background in IT (Web Dev, Graphic Design), Sales, Marketing, Finance, Product Development, Business Development, ECommerce, Retail and you are passionate, hard working, relentless, and crazy enough to dare to make a difference......THEN LOOK NO FURTHER!

"The best way to predict the future is to create it." Abraham Lincoln.

I can't wait to hear from you.
