Here are a few fun facts about Aaron:

  • Is particularly great at: Designing systems that address the needs of our customers. Be it features or discoverability that enable the success of their venture, or obsessing over globally optimized performance.
  • Hails from: Originally from Eugene, Oregon, but most of my years were spent in Burbank, California.
  • Dreams about: So many dreams … I’d say my top is to solve some really big problem that will impact a ton of people’s lives for the better. I also dream about experiencing more of the world, and the mysteries that lie therein.
  • Loves GoCentral because: It’s the most pragmatic website builder in the world. Designed from the ground up to cater to those who don’t have a lot of time to spend designing their website — they’re (understandably) too busy running a business!
