About

I'm Aaron – a product-minded designer who makes complex things simple & obvious 

 Live from the stage/my workspace
 
 

For the past few years, I've lead the Design Team at Yammer (acquired by Microsoft). I was a Product Designer working on our mobile products previously.

Before that, I was a designer at Scribd where I built tools for content creators, including work on the popular document and PDF reader used by media companies including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, The Huffington Post, TechCrunch. You’ve probably read an Apple court case document on it at some point.

Previously, I was the first design hire at MINDBODY, building business management software to serve gyms, spas and salons worldwide. I went on to lead the design and front-end teams there.
