Hi. I’m Aaron. Thanks for stopping by.
I am an expert in using technology to solve business problems and in leading directional, strategic change within organizations. I have worked for a number of organizations, including Accenture Strategy, John Deere, Ascension Health, Verizon, Time Warner Cable, American Express, Cenovus Energy and Direct Energy. I like working with smart, motivated people and getting things done.
In my time outside of my professional commitments, I enjoy biking through the Twin Cities’ excellent network of parks and trails, opportunistic international travel, nerdy games, and tinkering with software and electronics.
Recent updates and accomplishments
Advanced open water scuba certification – During September 2020, I spent three weeks in Plata del Carmen, Mexico where I earned my advanced open water certification.
Private pilot license – In June 2020, I completed the training and passed my checkride, earning my private pilot license. This was the culmination of 9 months of training and study and allows me to fly myself and passengers in small planes under visaul flight rules. If you’re up in Minneapolis, let’s go for a flight!
Freelance writing – Starting in February 2020, I began writing as a freelance contributor for Forbes Advisor on the topics of credit cards and miles/points programs. Published content on Forbes.com can be found here.
