Al was part of the team that helped launch Christina Aguilera's career. After Christina was discovered by his good friend and colleague Steve Kurtz, Al served as Director of Online Entertainment and Marketing for Christina and her company, Three Wishes Productions, Inc., working as her publicist and webmaster ('Best Sites of the 21st Century' - Entertainment Weekly), as well as being her biographer and archivist, and serving on her promotion and marketing team. In addition, Al has produced two singles for Aguilera ('Holiday With Christina' and 'What A Valentine Wants') and executive produced a #1 dance remix of her single 'What A Girl Wants' for RCA/BMG Records.

He also conceived and produced American Idol's Katharine McPhee's Christmas single, 'A Gift to You,' as well as serving as a regional judge for the TV show.

Al has also worked with Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jim Brickman, Béla Fleck, Nils Lofgren, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Little Anthony and the Imperials, Jay Geils, Paul Doucette (Matchbox 20), Glenn Tilbrook (Squeeze), Freddy Cole, multi-platinum producer Shelly Yakus, actor/directors Andrew McCarthy, Tiffani Thiessen, Stephen Collins, and William Shatner, and many other great artists.

Big Noise's work has earned the firm gold and platinum awards from the Recording Industry Association of America, in addition to other major awards.

Al has produced 26 award-winning CD compilations including CDs for First Night Boston and the National Association of College Broadcasters (which featured R.E.M., Anthrax, Primus, Cowboy Junkies, Henry Rollins, Cracker, Eve's Plum, Luscious Jackson, and Mazzy Star). The NACB CD received Print Magazine's annual 'CD Design Award.'

Al also produced the original motion picture soundtrack CDs for the directorial debuts of actors Andrew McCarthy ('News for the Church') and Tiffani Thiessen ('Just Pray' which featured Paul Doucette from Matchbox 20 and Lori McKenna).

Al is a full voting and nominating member of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (The Grammy Awards), as well as serving on the Grammy Nomination Craft Committees for Best Recording Package and Best Box Set.

Inspired by Bob Geldof's Band Aid project, Al conceived the Bandwagon Project which produced a benefit recording, 'Three Sides of Hunger' (featuring platinum recording artist John Cafferty and a 150-person celebrity chorus consisting of musicians, journalists including MTV Networks executive producer Bill Flanagan, TV broadcasters, politicians, and service agency heads), and two sold-out televised concerts which elevated awareness of the plight of the poor in America and raised thousands of dollars for American agencies that aid the hungry and homeless. For his efforts, Al went on to win The Jefferson Award from the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Foundation for Outstanding Public Service. View YouTube clip

Al has composed songs with many award-winning and renowned songwriters including two-time Emmy Award Winner Sean Callery ('24,' 'Medium,' 'La Femme Nikita'), John Cafferty ('Eddie and the Cruisers'), Jimmy Crane (Elvis Presley, Doris Day), Mike Viola ('That Thing You Do,' 'Walk Hard'), David Minehan (Paul Westerberg, The Neighborhoods), and Chris Dominici (National Geographic Network, Fox Sports), among others.
