Aaron is one of those great combinations of a listener and a problem solver. He has been a technical founder of various businesses since th ... e early days of the Internet. This has helped him see patterns that lots of new Founders do not see. During our many lunches, chats, emails he always is the first to give advice and really think about how successful your company can be. He has the ability to identify business opportunities like no other. It is one of the best things I love about talking with Aaron. I would describe him as the Harvey Keitel Character in Pulp Fiction, Winston the Wolfe. First guy you call when you need guidance. He is a great advisor to any startup looking to grow.

Chief Design Officer, Personal BlackBox. Previously Director of Product Strategy and Experience, Personal Blackbox.
Andre's a great designer because he understands how to see through the personalities and maintain focus on the needs of end users. He's ade ... pt in managing a hierarchy on the part of his clients, as well as differences between the company's "perceived" end-users vs. who the end-users really are. He's a pleasure to work with, his firm produces top-quality work, and I'm not at all surprised that demand for his services is rapidly growing!
