Aaron is a U.S. Army Veteran, award-winning wellness consultant, author and national speaker. After returning home from two deployments, he hit rock bottom by failing in his personal and professional life. Aaron began moving upwards once he realized and harnessed his personal power through endurance racing. He met a young woman with cerebral palsy, and together they challenged their physical and mental limits as he pushed and pulled her in races such as a 140.6 mile IRONMAN triathlon and 100 mile run. Aaron challenges the status quo by empowering people, organizations and communities to move upwards together through a life filled with positivity, passion and purpose.
