Aaron J Stanley

Web Developer + UX Specialist

I am a design-minded and detail-focused digital marketing professional who is obsessed with building beautiful web experiences.

Hi, I’m Aaron! My passion for digital marketing started when my parents purchased our first computer during my eighth-grade year of school. A long summer of delivering papers later, I bought my first .com and never looked back.

I have had the privilege to work for and collaborate with a number of tremendously talented people in a variety of enterprise industries including staffing, insurance, financial, medical, agricultural, educational, retail, hospitality, manufacturing, non-profit/faith-based, government, and more.

I get incredibly excited about SEO, web accessibility, AI, and user experience and will talk your ear off about any and all of those three subjects given the chance.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, running, playing music, cooking, and watching a good movie. If anyone asks, I’m a White Sox fan, but haven’t watched a game all the way through in a long time.
