Getting the Edge on Aaron

Something most people don’t know about me:
I started racing motocross as a young adult and it took me two knee surgeries, one broken leg and two broken
collar bones before I won my first, 1st place trophy.

Worst job:
I would sit in the Pineview Marina parking booth charging boaters for parking. I was off of work by 2:00 p.m.,
so I spent many a summer afternoon cruising the beaches on big boats and working on my tan. What makes
this qualify as my worst job? In my shorts and sandals and big rubber gloves I had to clean the outhouses every
week. Yuck…

First job:
I started working at Rogers Eggs when I was 12 years old, every day after school and full time in the summer.
My friends didn’t mind because I had four dirt bikes by the time I was 16.

Favorite quote:
“Just do it”

Favorite thing to do outside of work:
Right now, it’s men’s softball on Thursday nights and a co-ed team with my wife on Fridays.

Pets:
Two horses and two dogs.

Embarrassing story about yourself:
I had just signed up one of my first clients and as we were taking them to lunch, I jumped into one of those big
circle doors with the Managing Partner of Grant Thornton and had to shuttle walk through it with him.

Who inspires you:
The explorers that settled our country inspire me. My wife inspires me. My kids inspire me.

Favorite food:
Steak and beans.

Favorite hobbies:
Taking my wife anywhere. Sports (especially the NBA finals) and all types of outdoor recreation; horse packing
into the mountains, camping, fly fishing, and cheering for my kids.
