Nicknamed ‘Adventure Aaron’ by a near 100,000 followers on social media, he continued to film bucket list adventures while paying it forward by taking those in need from various organizations, along with him. From wing walking on bi-planes to Running with the Bulls, Aaron enjoys living life to the fullest after surviving cancer in 2008.

In 2010, he incorporated a minimalist approach going around the world without a bag for 50 days, cutting his teeth on unscripted live feeds. He captured the moments on social media and continued producing spin off shows.

On June 30, 2016, Aaron set out on a 233-day expedition in a canoe for over 5,000 miles. Raising awareness for his friends organization called ‘I’m Adopted.org,' he soloed an open top canoe from Montana to Florida, breaking the ‘Longest solo journey in a canoe or kayak’ record, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.
