I'm a business owner, content creator, podcaster and marketer. In 1999 I founded Rahvalor Interactive, a web and creative services production studio, with my husband and business partner Ralph. In 2011 we created Web.Search.Social, a consulting and marketing service line for small businesses. We also cohost the Web.Search.Social Podcast where we challenge the status quo of marketing and the Carbon Based Business Units podcast where we talk about the human side of being an entrepreneur. On any given day I wear the hat of project manager, consultant, social media manager and content marketer. My true passion is writing and in my spare time I'm busy planning my early retirement to Barcelona as a famous and wealthy novelist.

  • Aaron is the epitome of genuineness, talent, and fun. Beautiful interview! I could listen to him for hours. He’s the real deal … and he knows how to knit. 🙂

    • I know!! The knitting is my favorite thing. He has done some pretty fun work in his time. And I love his artwork. He is also a super nice guy which is the best best part 🙂

      • I’ll have to say this is one of my favorite podcast interviews. I love them all, mind you, but Aaron’s is a standout. It’s the “super nice guy” factor that sealed the deal for me. You can hear the authenticity in his voice. 🙂
