Sok! Pow! Zock! Aaron brings it all to every project.

He thinks big and inspires those around him with a rare enduring passion for the craft. Aaron may present ideas to challenge your comfort, but he'll execute with the utmost respect for your sensibilities. He's as approachable as he is talented, always willing to take the next person who crosses his path under his wing and guide them on their way, and yet he still aspires to push the boundaries of technology with the sort of giddy overtures that captivate a room. There is a mythos about the man. Consider yourself lucky if you have the chance to work with him.

Founder - The Human Expansion Co.
Aaron is one of the finest graphic designers I know.

He has an acute eye for great work and has an ability to mold other influences into his work. He is a highly versatile designer and one I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
