Hi, I’m Aaron
I reside in Colorful Colorado.
I’m a hobbyist photographer and while in college did photography for the University of Wisconsin Athletics Department. I took a photograph of Badger fans rushing the field after clinching the Big Ten title, which was the 2010-2011 Best Seller through the Wisconsin Athletics photo shop.
I’ve had artwork accepted into Conan O’Brien’s MoCA gallery and was part of the Guinness World Record for helping Firefox 3 become the most downloaded file in a 24-hour time span.
You can view my Experimental Art Gallery on DeviantART.com.
I’m also an avid geocacher and hid my own geocache in Madison. Go ahead and find it! There’s a beautiful view of the Wisconsin Capitol from its perch along the edge of Lake Mendota.
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2011 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Graphic Design. I also took a number of Computer Science classes as an undergraduate.
I’m now considered a “Full-Stack” Developer and a team lead at niolabs.
I was the lead developer for the Residence Life product at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
I led the WordPress conversion of a custom CMS to a large Multisite installation that includes custom theme development, and web API creation for mobile apps.
I received a certificate through EDX’s Introduction to Linux course.
Before my current job, I was a photographer, designer, and developer for the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Athletic Department. I designed and helped develop the Gameday App.
I am part of a group called Hacking Madison, which “hacks for the common good”. We’ve created apps like Bus Radar and Adopt a Hydrant. We like to see how we can use Open Data to create services that can benefit the whole community.

On Average, when you call 911, it takes them 90 seconds to just get your basic information, before they even dispatch the police. The emergency response app is to be a mobile “Blue Light Callbox”.
