The following videos will give you a snapshot of my media consulting work with Revolution PAC. A political action committee designed to harness and amplify grassroots energy surrounding the Ron Paul presidential campaign in 2011-2012. Ron Paul proceeded to come in a surprising second place (only 4% behind Mitt Romney) in the New Hampshire primary
The goal of this project was to produce high quality video work of grassroots supporters for the candidate on the ground in New Hampshire within a tight 48 hr time constraint.
Excluding the interview with Tom Woods, the people interviewed in the following videos were completely unknown by me.

I have worked with Aaron for almost three years and I would highly recommend him to any company looking for an innovative, creative, high thinking professional. Aaron is a wealth of knowledge and is one of the most creative innovative individuals I know. He did Business Development and Sales for me when we worked together and he was always a top 10% performer. I would hire Aaron again if given the chance.

Aaron is very positive and keeps morale up when a project needs it most. He is good at working with people, organizing events, and putting the right people together to make a project happen.
