About Aaron

Humanist and environmentalist interested in all things blockchain. Looking for others to simply engage with and bounce ideas off of and learn from each other. Not currently hashing out any brain children, rather, thinking through the implications on a global scale of decentralization and blockchain and how it can be used to impact the most rigidly centralized systems to affect change for those that suffer the most in this world and effectively lessen suffering. Some possible Robin Hood complex kind of shit as well re: redistribution of wealth. Extremely interested in how we can build upon the blockchain infrastructure being created to change the most toxic of human patterns.

My old about me:

I'm a creative minded business professional who has successfully launched new physical spaces and developed a brand. I also have a varied background in GIS/Geospatial Analysis and have the associated mapping and visualization skills.

I bring strategic and logistical analysis for business development to the table, as well as web mapping and design to reach audiences and tell a story using visualization. People are my specialty, and I love engaging new groups and being part of creative brainstorming session, as well as selling an idea or product that I believe in to those that have never tried it.

I currently am passionately working for a 8 person Utility Scale Solar development startup as their development manager, running the GIS side of things and providing support where needed. Somewhat of a jack of all trades, trying to learn absolutely as much as I possibly can about everything.


I'll tell you what hermits realize. If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you'll come to understand that you're connected with everything. - Alan Watts
