Aaron grew up on a small farm near Springfield, Missouri with his brother and parents who owned a local bookstore. He left Springfield in 1991 to attend Webster University. These days he lives in Maplewood with his beloved spouse, Sheila. She is the Executive Director of Artists First Saint Louis, a non-profit art studio focused on connecting underserved members of the community with the arts. Aaron has been known to volunteer as a bartender at Artists First special events.
When not working, Aaron loves to cook for Sheila. The two of them travel when possible and enjoy good food, art, live music, and truly outstanding beer.
