Hi I'm Aaron

I am a runner and a combat veteran. I help small businesses get off the ground. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I got married in 2010, and have one 3-year-old son who is completely full of life. We also have another baby on the way. I research and teach about marketing. This fall I am teaching my first class -- Intro to Marketing for business minors. It's pretty exciting. I love Oregon and love the outdoors. We just put in a fall/winter garden with cold frames. Our favorite thing to do as a family is to stay at the Oregon coast. We just bought a home and I am learning a lot making all of the repairs myself. I was a missionary for 2 years in Brazil when I was younger. I am also an Army veteran, and served honorably in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

Why I am a Mormon

It just makes sense to me. It's so simple. The wonders of the universe are laid out to us in a way that a child could understand. We know why we're here, what God's plan for us is, and we know of his infinite love. We also know what his expectations are for us, and we don't have to wonder about it. That's why I love it! Also, it just feels right. I love going to church and having that feeling in my heart that I'm right where my Father in Heaven wants me to be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. There is always an opportunity to serve. One of my favorite things to do is to visit the elderly. I love watching the Lawrence Welk show with them and I just love visiting with them. They always have such wonderful insights about life.
