Aaron Roan

For Aaron, it was all 3.

Named Time magazine person of the year in 2006, Aaron has spent a lifetime in pursuit of world knowledge and education. Professionally, he helped lead a small internet company to become one of the largest search engines in the world. During this same time, he traveled the world learning about different cultures from Southeast Asia, South Asia, Central and South America, the Balkans and the Mediterranean. He made huge humanitarian impact in these countries founding schools and enabling the impoverished. He is also the co-founder and leader of a powerful community organization in the San Francisco Bay Area that focuses on the central social issues facing American culture today. Overall, Aaron is a leader, a philanthropist, and one of the most consequential (albeit under the radar) men of our age.
