TL;DR Version:

Hi! I’m Aaron. I photograph things and I write things;
mostly, I love
helping people create their own things.

 


Long version:

Hello, Interwebs!

I’m Aaron, and I create things for fun and for work (and f’life, yo).

Basically, I write things and photograph and design things for myself and for other creative people, many who are in the process of making changes in their business or brand identity.

 

WHAT I DO:

I help people grow their tiny ideaseeds into actual things and build budding new brands.

HOW I HELP:

Over a 20-plus-year career guiding corporate creative departments, I've done everything from brand development to website deployment; print and interactive design; photography; trade shows & signage; direct marketing; advertising; and nearly every creative service in-between.

In my own creative life I’ve found efficient solutions, and over time I’ve developed a unique creative process that works for me.

Now, I love helping other helpers, healers, artists and makers tap into their own source of ideas and inspiration to create changes or grow their new ideas—from brands to books and blogs—and to give shape to their smartest ideas.

My business is focused on helping entrepreneurs nurture their own creative process, grow new ideas, make more meaningful things, and create changes in their brand and world.


This is what we do. We’re the making ape. And no one is left out of the inheritance of that. That’s our shared human inheritance.
— Elizabeth Gilbert, On Being

WHY I create / help:

At the heart of what I do is a sincere love and appreciation for the creative process.

I’ve always had the drive to make and create new things. 

I think that ideas and inspiration visit ALL human people from the creative ethers, but it’s up to us to take action on our ideas.

And regardless of whether or not we ever consciously realize, nurture, or practice the process of creativity itself, I do believe it’s an innate tendency inside all human beings.

I share this notion, with my creative sherpa, Elizabeth Gilbert, that all human beings are creative by way of being HUMAN. And we're all perpetually becoming the artists of our own lives through the unique ideas we create and share.

For more, check out my personal Museletter, where I share my own unique perspective and ideas on creativity, courage, and change.

I love creating outside the confines of corporate cubicles and feeling free to make and share more of my own things.

Most of all, I love being able to help others create changes (and ideas!) of their own.

Oh, hey!

You’re still here! 

So, if we’re still together, here—literally—on the same page, then, you’re probably, definitely, totally my person.

Since I’m pretty sure my people love to read.

 So... You. Are. WELCOME! ;)

Here’s a little more, you fiend...
