He is the primary contact for numerous projects, acting as a project manager and project architect during schematic design, design development, the preparation of construction documents, and as contract administrator during the construction phase. 

"I find it satisfying to create something beautiful. I love making things – baked goods to buildings."         

Aaron was a key member of the Pinnacle Bank design team, and also contributed to Ankeny Prairie Trail High School, Jackie D. Gaughan Multicultural Center at the University of Nebraska, Elkhorn South High School in Omaha, and national justice projects including CCA San Diego and Hancock County Jail.        

"My mom gave me advice I use every day, "Do your best and be proud...but remember that "best" this time can always be "better" next time."
