After a few years of producing television and documentaries, in 2008 Aaron joined a small New York based company called SAMMA Systems as a delivery and support engineer.

From 2015 to 2017, Aaron helped to grow GrayMeta from 2 people to 20, building our first products (including what eventually became known as Curio), writing our patents, and building lasting relationships with Microsoft and Oracle. In 2017, Aaron left to help found his own machine learning startup, Machine Box, which he grew and sold to Veritone. Post-sale, Aaron served as a Senior Director of Product Management at Veritone until November 2019 when he joined AWS. Aaron has spent the past three plus years developing and growing a new business within AWS focused on solutions to help customers optimize their cloud spend. He scaled a team from four people to over 200 and generated over $100M in net new revenue for Amazon.
Aaron is thrilled to return to GrayMeta as CEO bringing his experience with our core products (SAMMA, Iris, and Curio) and his ability to grow and scale companies.
