Biography

I'm Aaron and I'm a journalist working across product and editorial.

What was your first job as a journalist?

Working as a news producer at Digital First Media's Project Thunderdome. My first internship in college was at The Sunday Paper in Atlanta.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes. And not in an ironic way.

What does it mean to be a journalist?

To run toward the chaos when everyone runs away — to be the only skeptic in the room when everyone is just going along with things.
