After 20-plus years as a sports writer, Aaron Lopez shifted from fast breaks to finance when he joined Transamerica in 2014. As the lead writer/editor for Transamerica’s creative services team, Aaron helps people understand the importance of saving for retirement and staying healthy enough to enjoy it.
Prior to his work at Transamerica, Aaron spent five years as the writer and digital content manager for Nuggets.com. He provided behind-the-scenes insight, breaking-news stories, player features, and video for the site and the NBA team’s social media platforms.
Before joining the Nuggets, Aaron was a sports writer for the Rocky Mountain News. He began his professional career with the Associated Press in 1994, covering everything from the Colorado Rockies to cashmere goats.
Aaron, 46, graduated from the University of Washington in 1993 and lives in Arvada, Colorado with his wife Michelle and the CIA – their three children Cruz, Isabelle, and Alexander.
