Aaron is a Southern California native who ended up in Alaska. He graduated with a Missionary Aviation degree from LeTourneau University in May 2016, earning his A&P Mechanic and Commercial Pilot Licenses along the way.
After a class trip to Alaska in 2015, he became hooked on the natural beauty and missionary opportunities Alaska offered. He moved up after graduating and served with Kingdom Air Corps for the summer, working in Anchorage when their season was finished. Through his time here, God has nurtured in him a heart for the unreached and underreached Alaska Natives, especially youth. After serving for a year as the Male Resident Mentor at Tanalian Leadership Center, Aaron took on the role of Interim Development Director.
Aaron is an outdoor enthusiast and enjoys hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, long walks on the beach, and photography. Alaska is the place to combine aviation, outdoors, and the Gospel of Christ.
