Aaron is a cofounder of August Uncommon Tea with his spouse, Gina Zupsich. They created the brand to reimagine tea as a modern culinary experience. At August, Aaron runs product design and business operations. The brand is growing incredibly quickly and takes up most of his time.

In 2014, Aaron became the founding director of design and product at Artform, a private social network for professional fine artists with cofounders Benjamin Millepied and Nicholas Britell. Artform counted twitter founder Ev Williams among its investors. After successfully designing and launching the Artform iOS app, he left the company in 2017. 

From 2006 through 2011, Aaron worked as a design lead at IDEO, a globally renowned innovation consultancy in the San Francisco Bay area. At IDEO, he led strategy and design projects for Fortune 500 companies in fields as diverse as medical devices, consumer packaged goods, airport security, financial services, and food and beverage.

Prior to that, Aaron worked as an art director and designer at Visionaire and V Magazine in New York, producing top-tier art and fashion publications with a host of blue chip collaborators from the art and fashion worlds.

He attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and earned his BFA from Parsons School of Design.

When he’s not working, he’s spending time with his family, DJing, walking Giorgio, or cooking something delicious.
