Hi, I’m Aaron, a life-long learner, technologist, and tinkerer.  I have over 20 years of experience building products, enhancing user experiences (UX), and solving problems using technology.  I’ve run my own consultancy building web applications as a full-stack developer and have spent my more recent years building serverless systems on the AWS cloud for a couple technology startups.  As of September 2019, I join the company that I have worked with so much as a customer in becoming a Sr. Partner Solutions Architect at Amazon/AWS.

I hold a B.S. in Information and Computer Science and a Master’s in Human-Computer Interaction and Design from UC Irvine. I also have certifications as an AWS Solutions Architect – Professional, AWS Developer, AWS SysOps Admin, and Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO).
