Aaron started programming from a young age, joining Microsoft while attending high school outside Seattle. Just before starting Adroll.com, he worked at Stottler-Henke Artificial Intelligence, developing AI algorithms and systems to help NASA schedule and launch missions. Which is almost as complicated as ads. But hey, it's not rocket science.
Aaron graduated from Stanford University with a major in computer science. He was the only undergraduate advisee under the legendary computer scientist and Professor John McCarthy.
