Aaron was born and raised on the small island of Kauai in Hawaii, where he spent most of his formative years chasing chickens, snorkeling, going on wild adventures, and being oblivious to the rest of the world.
Being a child in Hawaii is an amazing experience, but there is little opportunity for higher education on the islands. Aaron moved to the mainland to take advantage of foreign concepts like math and English.
Having always had the need to create, Aaron was naturally drawn to art, design, and aesthetics. He is the type of person who looks at something and thinks “That could be better”. Aaron was admitted to a very competitive College of Design at North Carolina State University, only 12 applicants were chosen from thousands.
Although he graduated Magna Cum Laude from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Industrial Design, Aaron was also teaching himself photography and Photoshop independently.
