My name is Aaron Simmons and I am a Designer and Researcher focused on the intersections of futures, products, and people. I’m a strategic thinker with experience in early stage startups, nonprofits, and education innovation. My experience in these sectors, as well as my education in design, anthropology, and philosophy, mean I bring a human centered and systems level eye to every project.
In my free time I make backpacks, am a co-founder of a futures group, and love learning about space exploration.
I work best in spaces where big ideas are encouraged, risks are taken, and the future is shaped. I bring a diverse skill set, and deeply human centered mindset to my work. My strengths are in building culture and networks, gathering user insights, and translating high level goals into actionable steps.
