Aaron grew up in Tiffin, Ohio. He started diving in 1994, “back in the day”, at the insistence of a lady in his life. After a long surface interval following his initial certification, he picked up diving again in 2016/2017 when his son showed interest in it. His favorite courses, up to now, have been his Rescue Diver course, his Master Scuba Diver course, where he learned the most about buoyancy, and his favorite course to work with as a Divemaster is Advanced Open Water. He loves diving with his son, and his goals are to eventually become an instructor and work with Project Barracuda/disabled divers upon retirement from Physical Therapy.
