Hi, I'mAaronChelliah

Founder. Leader. Strategist. Designer. Developer. Researcher.
 

Overview.

I'm a skilled product strategist and founder. I've built 2 companies and helped launch 18 others.

Most importantly, I'm a fast learner. I synthesize large volumes of information to drive decisions and develop new skills quickly.

As a developer, I have experience with TypeScript and Python, frameworks like React and Next.js, and PostgreSQL databases.

I believe product development should be human-centric, user-obsessed, and future-oriented. I'm passionate about building products that make a difference.
