Aaron’s affinity for gear originally came from living the coastal lifestyle in southeastern North Carolina where he’d spend time surfing, free diving, and whatever else he could keep himself busy with on the water. After relocating to Colorado, Aaron traded his surfboard for a snowboard and spent three seasons as a ski technician for two of the largest retailers in Colorado.
Known as the “gear destroyer,” Aaron has a knack for finding flaws in gear, yet he also can come up with solutions to fix them. When not splitboarding, Aaron is busy exploring the waters and mountains of Colorado with his family and enjoying camping, hiking, and water-based activities.
With an undergraduate degree in Marine Sciences and Meteorology and a master’s in deaf education, Aaron is a man of many hats as marketing and outreach coordinator for Marion Downs Center, program administrator for Cue College, and manages media production through Cue Cognatio.
