Aaron likes his music loud, his coffee black and his whiskey neat.
A designer and technologist in Ann Arbor, MI, his current investigations relate to the practical application of computational tools and their intersection with traditional interpretations of craft and technique. Aaron is currently finishing a Masters of Science in Architecture at the University of Michigan with dual concentrations in Digital Technologies and Material Systems. After serving as a research assistant in the school's Digital Fabrication Lab he recently joined the university as the FABLab Coordinator where he is lucky enough to play with CNC machines and gives robots high-fives.
Aaron is also a founding partner of the design and research practice Khôra with his long-time collaborator Rob Trumbour. An off-shoot of their earlier efforts as the media-arts installation collaborative Artforming, Khôra has served as a means for the pair to focus their efforts through both writing and fabrication. Recent written pieces have dealt with the positioning of installation art in architecture and an examination of computation for analog processes; their first installation under the new alias will take place June 2013 in Cambridge, MA.
Holding a Bachelors of Architecture from Wentworth Institute of Technology along with Associate degrees in both Civil Engineering and Architectural Engineering, Aaron worked at the school managing the fabrication facilities and co-teaching undergraduate coursework dealing with the application of computational tools in the design process. He has also collaborated with the digital design collective LaN and worked in a handful of architectural practices.

An in-the-trenches view of digital fabrication, academic research, post-hardcore music and whiskey. Not necessarily in that order and often in combination.
