Aaron has a single motivation in life and at work. To bring curious humans into a physical space that opens their minds and challenges their assumptions to create fiction-free environments for communication, innovation, and whatever the 21st century has in store for "work."

Aaron started Spaces Of explicitly to answer one question: what is the office after Covid? He and his partners developed a method of corporate cultural understanding that looks at space through an analytical lens of volume, density, flow, and performance but also uncovers and honors its emotional aspects: Why people go to work, not just where they go to work.

He developed this process of understanding as the executive creative director for the in-house architectural design group at Airbnb from 2013-2020. "Environments" was responsible for millions of square feet of space built in a period of hypergrowth and incredible optionality for the most high-value workforce in the world. The workspace had to function as a place to get things done but also communicate deep brand values and illicit a sensation of belonging that acted as a tool for retention and recruitment. This idea of brand embodiment is central to understanding "destination" in the 21st century.

In its two years of operation, Spaces Of has worked with several high-profile clients to understand and tailor a spatial strategy for a culture-first vision of work, including:

  • Regional workplace Strategy for SAP in the Bay Area
  • Headquarters refresh for Pinterest
  • Westcaps New York office (completed 12/2022)

Aaron has a BA in Cinema and a Master's degree in architecture. He has been a songwriter, a comic book artist, a filmmaker, a sound engineer, a professor, and an architectural designer. He brings the summation of these experiences to his current role as Creative Director of Spaces Of.
