About Aaron

THE OPPORTUNITY
I'm interested in building a new platform.

I can bring the following things to the table: MVP, Product Mgm, Some Startup Capital, Legal, Accounting, Business Development, and Marketing

I'm looking for the following: a fantastic and passionate Fixer that can perfect backend systems (in Ruby and RoR) and possibly a few other people to help out (Business Development and Community Outreach folks).

MY BACKGROUND
I'm a Sr. Lvl User Experience Consultant, web developer, and entrepreneur. Prior to teaching myself coding and web development, I worked as a corporate paralegal (healthcare insurance) for three years and then started my first Web Development and Internet Marketing business a few credits shy of completing my second Bachelor's degree (in Economics).

The first business and office I grew without any outside investment failed, and I learned tremendously from the experience. I continued in business and started working as a business Consultant. That tenacity and perseverance served as a good stepping stone for a great consulting career and many great opportunities.

MY EXPERIENCE
I now have close to 5 years in E-commerce experience, working with small brick and mortar shops wanting to get online to intricate experiences for the most well known E-commerce store in the world.

I've worked on Platforms and Mobile apps for publicly traded companies like Audible.com (an Amazon company), Universal Studios, Scholastic Inc (a Fortune 500 company), and several manufacturing companies with revenues in the hundreds of millions of dollars. I've learned tremendously from working with some of the best talent in the world in this space, and have contributed to many digital products used by hundreds of millions of users today.

I'm an inventor type who's well known for it, and come up with constant new ideas to make things better not just once but on an ongoing basis.
