Senior Program Operations Manager * he/him
Aaron’s background is in operations, but that’s only part of the story. He started off his career working on a PhD in early American history studying contested public space in late 18th century New York City. However, life would eventually lead Aaron to enter politics, where he managed and worked on local and statewide campaigns before he became the Director of Operations and Production at a political media consulting firm. Aaron’s proud of the work he did helping elect progressives to office up and down the ballot, but he began to feel drawn toward working in tech for social good. What energized Aaron about politics - fighting for what you believe in and creating a more just, equitable society - is what he found in tech working most recently at New/Mode, a civic tech startup, and now at Superbloom. Here, Aaron focuses on contracts and funding agreements, program management, fundraising efforts, and finances. He also leads Superbloom’s fiscal sponsorship program.
Aaron lives in Chicago with his wife and pup. When he’s not working, he’s often going for long runs, talking about the White Sox to anyone who will listen, or biking around town exploring what’s new in the city.
