Aaron is highly motivated to get things going. Last year, he singlehandedly pulled together an entry to a Nike startup-idea competition. I ... t was a good idea and he worked really hard on short notice to pull it together. He knew it was a long shot and did it to at least go through the process and learn from it, which I admired. He's solid.

Aaron has a rare talent for drawing out the enthusiasm and unique talents of those around him and channeling this energy in a manner that co ... ntributes to the success of the product and the company.
