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.
