What you see and what you hear depends a great deal on where you are standing. It also depends on what sort of person you are.
Jeff works in the preconstruction department as an estimator. He enjoys spending his time with his wife and their two kids, going to the beach as a family, surfing & playing golf. He is passionate about all aspects of the building process, but especially to see the final product after after working with the first set of drawings. Jeff is deeply gratified and humbled by the knowledge that he contributed to a project. While Jeff is new to the GC world of estimating, he is eager to learn & contribute to the positive impact that Align is projecting on the SD & OC community. He really enjoys the culture and the awesome environment at Align.

“Luck is what happens when preparation meet opportunity”
Don Canonizado has centered his career on client satisfaction. Before entering the general contracting industry, Don worked as a design engineer for an MEP consulting company. In this role he found it lacked real construction knowledge and was not enough to prepare excellent construction drawings. Don left that role and decided to join a small GC to experience how things are actually built in the field. It has been over 10 years since Don made this move and we are excited for him to now make his way to Align Builders. He comes to Align with an expertise in document control and an extensive knowledge of HCAI Projects.

If every decision and choice you make is just about you, at a certain time point you’re going to hit something that’s a lot tougher than you, that is going to make you quit because you don’t have a driving force for what you do – Inky Johnson
Hernan is driven by the desire to build the best version of himself. He loves to fish, play sports, watch the Lakers and Green Bay Packers and be at the beach. Growing up in Wilmington, CA, Hernan comes from humble beginnings, starting in construction at 16 years old doing drywall/finishes with his father to make a living. He continued to grow within the industry, going to school and developing a love for construction, allowing him to rise into new leadership positions. Hernan is always looking to improve and surround himself with those similar hardworking “go-getters” which lead him to join the Align Builders team. He is dedicated to learning everyday how to be better in all aspects of his life, but most importantly, as a builder and as a family man.
