He helped to build Everyone Counts, Inc., which delivers secure, reliable election services by Internet and telephone, and served as advisor to the CEO of Benchmark Revenue Management, which streamlines and improves hospital revenue cycles through proprietary software systems.
Aaron is a former executive of Microsoft Corporation, where he helped to build Windows, MSN, Visual Studio, and the company's Productivity Tools Team, and founded the Microsoft Big Gift Club for new philanthropists. He was the architect of MSN's move to Internet-based server software, and later served as full-time technology advisor to the CEO of Microsoft, Bill Gates.
He is an inventor of several patented innovations in computer networking and security, with additional patents currently pending. One of the creators of the "shareware" software business model in the 1980s, he has been an in-house executive of four early-stage software companies, typically as CTO and Director.
