Aaron brings two decades of experience as a multimedia developer, photographer, content specialist, and award-winning journalist to the table. From crafting copy, content and media strategy for some of the biggest brands in the outdoor and travel industries, to launching and editing numerous consumer and trade publications, e-commerce sites, and social platforms, Aaron is a hopelessly besotted media connoisseur who’s contributed to some of the country’s top periodicals. He’s a former category editor at Backpacker magazine, former director of digital strategy & content at Sporting Goods Business magazine, former managing editor at Blogs for Brands, and currently works as a contributing editor to Elevation Outdoors and Men’s Health. Aaron holds an MFA in documentary photography from the Savannah College of Art & Design and a BA in technical journalism from Colorado State University and has worked as a photographer, curator, and educator. In addition to his work as a freelance writer and photographer, he develops custom content and media strategy for his own agency, Formidable Media. A ski bum at heart, Aaron lives with his family in the high country of Nederland, Colorado, where he and his wife are raising two kids to love thin air and fresh pow.
