Originally from Edmond, Oklahoma, Aaron found himself not too close, not too far but just the right distance from home when he started studying at Oklahoma State University. Here, he spent five years earning both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in management information systems. It was also where he discovered his calling: data. Every aspect of working with data fascinates him, from visualization and analysis to data engineering and machine learning. The world of analytics best allows him to fuse his love for data and the creative side of his brain. Little did he know the perfect place to pursue this unique combo was just a few miles away at InterWorks.
An avid music lover, Aaron is fascinated by rhythm. He’s a former percussionist and drumline member at OSU, and though he doesn’t perform anymore, he writes both original and cover pieces that combine the traditional orchestral sound and modern synthesized sounds. His dream? To score a movie or video game one day. A mantra Aaron hopes to exemplify in life is from the GOAT himself, Ludwig van Beethoven: “To play a wrong note is insignificant; to play without passion is inexcusable.”
