Aaron Stipkovich

Publisher

With an education in information, technology, business and related disciplines, Aaron entered business on radio. Beginning as a disc jockey in Southern California, a nationally syndicated talk show host position soon followed.

During the transition from regional to national, he launched a national print magazine in several countries, and was distributed by Time Inc.

Having a handful of humble business media entities, a decade or so later he has divested himself from most of his companies to pursue new interests.

The quest for thought continues...

As a member of Think since 1999, TED, and with the subject of politics being substantive to Aaron, he decided to launch one publication that would be of interest to the mass of like-thinkers who travail, burdened with a painful void of culture and politics that plagues their every waking moment.

The publication that launched, laden beneath the weight of gnarl, was AND Magazine.

Aaron is non-partisan. He is neither liberal, conservative, nor independent. He looks at each issue and takes a position based on that issue. He tries not to speak on things he has not researched. He takes far too many risks and routinely makes even more mistakes. He drinks a multitudinous amount of coffee and has never looked back... ever. Somehow, he prospers.

Now, aside from the murky fog of travel and laborious baggage removal, his days are filled with doing what he can to abolish the party system and have the civilized world of politics be non-partisan (intentionally redundant.) The conduit of this effort, for now, is AND Magazine.

Whatever meager charitable efforts he can give, go to Americans and others worldwide in need, animals and peace.

As of November 5, 2017, Aaron's 257 articles like "Genevieve Morton" have totaled 31.2M views and shares.
