About me

Helping fellow man build the capacity to live through mindfulness.

Leveraging 15 years of building community and education-based organizations, we are paving the way toward living with greater presence, purpose, and compassion (e.g. happiness) through a modern-day mindfulness practice.

As a syndicated columnist, passionate motivator and globally renowned speaker, Aaron is one of the most dynamic emerging figures in the massive shift toward Mindful Living. The combination of his Zen practice, entrepreneurial success and real world approach to mindfulness is not only inspirational, but also highly practical for all those trying to manage the chaos of living in today's busy connected world.

My Own Words
Since 2001, I have been dedicated to the mission of education through creating 3 successful companies that built industry first educational events; break through eLearning models and online marketplaces for those making the world a better place. During this time I was introduced to the Zen Buddhist practice that I have cultivated into more modern approach, I call Mindful Living.

Drawing on 15+ years of leadership and entrepreneur experience, I have set out to take concept of mindfulness and turn it into a way of life for all those that seek purpose, meaning, clarity and greater joy in their life. Especially, those that need it most like my fellow entrepreneurs, leaders and high potentials that have big plans. For them and all sentient beings looking for more out of life, I have co-created the organization called Mindful Order of Being.
