Aaron is a Digital Brand Strategist, Killer Content Creator, Filmmaker, Author and Award Winning Designer. He focuses on business solutions that encourage the promotional growth of digital entrepreneurs and content creators and specializes in devising creative ways to maximize the full potential of a client’s digital footprint. Through many creative channels and “out of the box” methods, Aaron advances his client’s brand, while maintaining marketing driven by consumer behavior.
Aaron has also been a thousand other things in his life, but always brings the same focus and drive to all of his endeavors.
At age 10 he won his first contract bid and designed a logo in MS paint on his mom’s computer.
In 1999 he was ranked 11th in the world at, in his words, “playing with a yo-yo”.
He used to be an incredible rock climber, but one time he fell 80 feet off a cliff while free-climbing after being attacked by Africanized Bees and broke most of his bones. After a full recovery, he decided it was likely he’d shot his whole bag-o-luck, and doesn’t climb anymore.
He obtained a degree in Graphic Arts in 2008 and immediately started an agency that grew to 20+ creatives and a full staff of Account Executives. He’s been a Multimedia Director, a Creative Director, a Marketing Director, a Founder (many times over), a CEO, a CCO, Podcaster, and most recently a Best Selling Author.
Aaron’s Podcast “Branding Like a BOSS” flew to the first page of iTunes’ “New & Noteworthy” section upon its launch, and still lives on Page 1 for Business Podcasts.
In the last few years, Aaron has transformed his agency of order takers into problem solvers, traveling around the world in his pursuit of help companies align their brands with their customers in the most meaningful ways possible.
Aaron believes that UX transcends usability. Not only is Aaron motivated to help his clients but also educate other creatives to become more user/customer centric if all of their processes.
Here’s an article I was featured in last week on INC.com http://on.inc.com/2v4uNQl
