About the Instructor

Aaron Duke Photo

VP of Product,
CirrusMD

Aaron runs the Product team and a few other things at CirrusMD, a text-first virtual health care platform. Having only been a consumer burned by the industry, he is jazzed to be building part of a major solution to one of America's most serious problems: access to health care. The simplicity of the solution is pretty incredible. CirrusMD taps into everyday devices like smartphones and tablets to provide instant and intuitive access to a doctor literally on demand, from the convenience of your couch. Ask him about it and you'll get fired up too.

After 14 chaotic years working and living in San Francisco and LA - tackling product problems for companies’ early stage and late; large, hierarchical messes and small, furious startups - Aaron and family gladly relocated to Denver in the summer of 2013. In his spare time, you'll find Aaron extremely happy in the kitchen making sense of whatever is there. Or outside on a walk or a hike or a bike.

In perfect honesty, Aaron's favorite products to manage are his three remarkable daughters: Camille, Audrey and Eleanor.
