As Group Tour Media's content marketing director, Aaron Ogg coordinates social media efforts, assists with search engine optimization for GTM's family of websites and oversees custom publishing projects.
Aaron is a proud father, Apple product geek, amateur beer snob and film buff. He is an Aquinas College graduate with a background in print journalism. Aaron's work has appeared in USA Today, the Chicago Tribune, The Grand Rapids Press and numerous other print and online publications.
When Aaron began working for Group Tour Media in 2010, he was relatively new to travel media and marketing — travel in general, really, save the occasional road trip. Since then, he's enjoyed a broadening of horizons, having visited some of the best group-friendly destinations in the world.
Strengths: Cultivating brand affinity, diaper changing, Words With Friends (Challengers?), running straight for relatively long distances.
Weaknesses: Math, home improvement and repair, cooking, athletic pursuits such as parallel parking.
