Geoffrey Selzer
We worked together  •  CEO, Flexx Family International and Founder and CEO, Luminous Publishing. Northwestern grad.
Aaron has superior communication skills backed by a keen intellect and analytical capabilities. He develops well thought out perspectives a ... nd is a strong advocate, but is flexible when convinced of alternative positions. Aaron has a deep level of personal and intellectual integrity which makes him a pleasure to work with. As an Entrepreneur, I would be happy to work with him as an advisor, partner or co-creator. I think he would be a great addition to your network.
Luke Massman-Johnson
We worked together  •  Owner + Creative Director, {designtoolbox}. Previously Creative Director, Polarity Management Associates, LLC. University of Michigan grad.
Aaron is the consummate writing pro: he's fun, smart, funny, quick and clever, and he's truly passionate about his craft. Few artists are as ... self-driven, focused, and committed as Aaron. He's a true veteran in the screenwriting business — very well networked and on the board of the Writer's Guild of America, West for years. But he's also amazingly adept at technology in entertainment, and the effect that has had on writers throughout the digital revolution. He has kept himself savvy in a wide variety of digital storytelling formats and is always game for pushing the boundaries of writing and entertainment. Every time I talk with him he's embedded in some exciting new writing gig. He's also very generous with his time and insight, and I turn to him for great professional advice on a regular basis. He'd be a great asset on any creative team.

Luke Massman-Johnson
They're my friends  •  Owner + Creative Director, {designtoolbox}. Previously Creative Director, Polarity Management Associates, LLC. University of Michigan grad.
Luke's innate combination of smart ideas, passion, decency, moxie and concern for the environment is custom made for carrying out innovative ... and focused ventures with an emphasis on social activism. His determination and stick-to-it-ness is truly a marvel to behold. He is a rare and brilliant guy who is destined to disrupt the status quo - and we'll all be better for it.
