Born and raised in Arizona, Aaron is proud to call the desert home. Although he lived just outside of Sacramento, California for several years as a teenager and served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Jamaica for two years, he has always returned home to the valley of the sun.
He married the girl of his dreams in 2001 and together they are raising four beautiful children. He draws heavily on his own life experiences and his faith in his writing and has published a children's picture book for his kids as well as a satirical work for humanity. His latest work is a short story about a youth group on an ill-conceived backpacking trip.

IT’S CALLED HELPING…YOU’RE WELCOME is a compilation of posts from a blog (don’t stop reading) I kept for a couple of years with a sprinkling of notes and articles that I wrote on various topics related to the human experience.
