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.
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, sandals, and big rubber gloves I had to clean the outhouses every week. Yuck…
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.
“Just do it.”
Favorite thing to do outside of work:
Work on the ranch, skiing, and hiking with my wife.
Horse, cows, dog, and cat.
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 shuffle-walk through it with him.
Who inspires you:
The explorers that settled our country inspire me. My wife inspires me. My kids inspire me. Jeff and Mike inspire me.
Steak and beans!
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.
