Despite being on the road for work, Aaron enjoys traveling for pleasure as having been to 49 states and 50 countries to date. A love of interior design and cooking has led him to completely renovating his last three homes and condos, with the most recent house in St. Petersburg, Florida winning an award for best renovation thanks in part to its new gourmet kitchen. But his greatest passion is sharing the world with his teenage son.
