After spending all of his free time working on art and design projects in high school, Aaron decided to turn his passions into a career. With a Visual Communications Design degree in hand following his graduation from Purdue University, he remained in West Lafayette, far from his Idaho home, to pursue a profession in the graphic design field.
As a Graphic Designer, Aaron is constantly creating visuals which consistently and effectively communicate messages to clients’ respective audiences; something he says is crucial in the making of a great brand. An avid Pixar Animation Studios fan, Aaron aspires to have his name in the credits of a movie someday, preferably as a graphic designer for the set dressing department of an animated film.

People would be surprised if they knew:
Only 3 of my 8 tattoos were professionally done. (I did 4 myself.)
What’s the most interesting thing you’ve ever done?
I revolutionized the potato farming industry in Idaho. My farm was the largest mountainside farm in the Pacific Northwest to use the technique of “hilling.” Just kidding! I did, however, study abroad in Medellín, Colombia which was amazing.
