Why I Care About Recycling and the Circular Economy

“Understanding and improving the flow of materials in the economy is crucial to our long-term survival on this planet. We cannot continue with our take-make-waste formula.”

Personal Passions and Interests

When not dreaming in 1s and 0s, Aaron is likely watching soccer or playing in the outdoors around Ann Arbor (or out west) with his wife, two boys, and their cattle dog.
