Aaron was captivated by the world of open source software while attending Portland State University in the 90s (such a glorious time in Portland that there is now a TV show all about it). This inspiration fueled his natural hacker nature, naturally. He comes from a traditional operations background but has evolved into a true polyglot engineer. A Dad to two boys, captain of one mountain bike, and a compulsive traveler, he keeps himself busy. Oh, and when he roots, he roots for the Timbers.
