Aaron worked as a pastor for 22 years in California.  During that time he wrote books on marriage and the Enneagram and developed a unique coaching system called Soul Architecture.  Aaron has also been the co-host of the Pirate Monk Podcast since 2010, where he and Nate Larkin have explored recovery themes and have interviewed experts in the field of addiction recovery.  At the end of 2018, Aaron and his family relocated to Tennessee where he began coaching men and women full time.  His unique style of coaching has helped hundreds of people move from hope to action, and desire to life change.
