After exploring opportunities in other networks, he became part of ABS-CBN in 2006 and joined the cast of "Sa Piling Mo." Albert played the role of Benicio Chuatoco, a cunning businessman and the Congressman's son who fulfilled his father's dying wish to protect Jennifer Limbaga (Judy Ann Santos). To do this, Benicio pretended to be Jennifer's brother-in-law but eventually fell in love with her.
