Nick Santangelo was born in Garden Grove, California on December 14, 1958. I grew up in Orange County, married and moved to Long Beach, then Los Angeles and finally, Altadena. I have lived in Altadena for nearly three years. Prior to that, I lived in Los Angeles for over twenty years. During that time, I was a member of many local and national non-profit organizations. Friends of the LA River, Los Angeles Conservancy, Big Brothers of Greater Los Angeles, LACMA, The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, Audubon Society, Los Angeles County Arboretum, Southern California Public Radio, etc. I retain membership in many of these organizations. Lately, I have gotten involved with the Campbell Center in Glendale, an organization that helps employ and advance those with developmental disabilities. If community involvement is a qualification, I believe I have much to offer Altadena. Since moving here, I am proud to say I have been accepted into the Altadena Rotary. I like the fact that they are an active, positive force for Altadena and the world. I am happy to say my ‘little brother’, Osvaldo Garcia is studying to be a Landscape Architect. We were matched by Big Brothers over twenty years ago. I am a widower. My wife passed away in 2017. We were married for nearly 35 years. I have no children, but wonderful nieces and grand-nephews. I am an organist/piano player and record music at my home studio, aka ‘Santangeles Sound’. I also convert cassette and LP recordings to mp3, and mix and edit audio and video. My band (‘Blues Channel’) plays blues, jump, swing, R&B music. We have played at The Mixx in Pasadena, as well as many other venues in the area. I sit in nearly every Sunday at The Living Room, which is a club in Los Angeles. It would be my honor to help promote and enrich this wonderful place I call home.

ALAN ANTHONY PECK was born and raised in Washington, D.C. After graduating from public high school, I attended the University of Pennsylvania, graduating from the Wharton School of Business in 1976. Subsequently I’ve lived in Houston, TX, my father’s home. While there I managed my Uncle’s string of TV Repair shops, then did large system sales for AT&T. Finally, I went into business for myself, selling copiers, fax machines and PC systems, managing, playing keyboards, flute, saxophone and singing in my own band as well as other groups around town. After a short stint back home in DC, I moved to Los Angeles in 1988. I worked a few years developing and maintaining an inventory control system for a paper supplier, and then as an insurance examiner, before signing on with the City of LA in 1999. There, I’ve worked in Community Development and as a Procurement Analyst at the Airport where I was involved in extensive outreach to the local business community. While there, I earned a Master of Public Administration degree from Cal State Dominguez Hills in 2015. I recently retired from the City of LA in August of 2020.
My wife, Jamelle, and I are also in business as AJ Peck Company. Under the dba Peck’s Preserves I cook and can seasonal preserves made from fruit from the trees in my back yard and those of my Altadena neighbors. Currently, I have Pomegranate Jelly, Guava Jam, Orange Supreme Marmalade, Tangerine Supreme Marmalade, Lemon Supreme Marmalade, and Grapefruit Supreme Marmalade (Persimmon Jam is currently out of stock). Under the dba Straight Dough Cookie Company my wife bakes and sells Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chocolate Chip Cookies w/ walnuts, Straight Dough Cookies (Chocolate Chip Cookies w/o Chocolate Chips), Straight Dough w/pecans, and White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies. In my unbiased opinion they all taste great!
My avocation is music. I sing, play flute and piano, write, arrange, and teach. Currently, I play flute with Rhythms of the Village and am the musician and a vocalist for Greater Height Mission Bible Church in LA. In my spare time I enjoy hiking the trails of the Angeles forest, gardening, and when I can, indulging my favorite sport, sailing.
