Meet Aaron



Originally, Aaron was an underappreciated systems administrator for a small toy company in San Francisco. He moved into construction when the dot com bubble burst and he had difficulty finding tech work. However, once he started, Aaron found that construction was by far a much more satisfying fit for his skills. He loved the feeling of accomplishment after completing each job and having a finished product to show for all his hard work. -Something he never got as a Systems Admin. 14 years later and he's never looked back.
