Biography

At a young age, Aaron would sit next to his father and watch him play classic computer games like doom 1 & 2 (until he was old enough to participate in some of the more cooperative 2 player titles that is). This is how Aaron was first introduced to technology, along with one of his favorite hobbies, video games.

Aaron is a Florida native, born and raised. He grew up in the Fort Walton Beach area where he attended grade school and met lifelong friends, like fellow Wizard, Antonio. In the 3rd grade, on the Edwins Elementary playground, Aaron met the love of his life, Tamara. Although, at first, it was nothing more than a playground crush. It wouldn't be for another 15 years when the two would rekindle their relationship and eventually go on to have two wonderful boys together.

Throughout Aaron's years in grade school, he picked up many more hobbies. One that stuck was his love for music. He played in the middle school drum line for a few years as a bass player, and every Wednesday he would play the drums for his youth group at the local church.

Later in life, Aaron continued to create music, but he transitioned from being a drummer to being an independent recording artist. He enjoyed writing and recording raps and melodies with his friends, along with creating the beats and mixing the audio to his liking. 

When Aaron became a father, he decided to pursue a profession in technology, as his experience with pc gaming and audio mastering gave him the leg up on some basic computer knowledge. He attended Okaloosa Technical College, where he acquired several CompTIA certifications, which gave him a strong foundation for technical skills. During his time at OTC, he configured servers and networks, and he helped troubleshoot the staff's technical issues. This allowed the teachers to keep teaching while Aaron grew his knowledge of IT.

After learning about Bit-Wizards’ core values, vision for technology, and community, Aaron knew he wanted to be a part of the team. He values teamwork, trust, and communication, along with being able to face new challenges and help solve problems!
