Aaron Travis

Head of Human-Centered Design

Aaron oversees the design organization at Bixal and champions a human-centered philosophy throughout the company, and with our federal partners, to produce products and services that are empathic, inclusive and effective.

Before coming to Bixal, Aaron was head of design for mission-driven products at a governance software company, designing market-leading governance tools used by thousands of nonprofits, local governments and school boards to collaborate and execute on their missions. Originally from Michigan and now living in New York, New York, Aaron got his BFA in fine art and design from the University of Michigan and an MBA in computer information systems from Baruch College. In his free time, he volunteers with the Systems Innovation Network to promote tools and methods for solving large scale problems and is passionate about raising awareness of the unconscious human biases that are often at the root of those problems. Aaron also enjoys traveling, cycling and skiing with his wife and young son.
