I am an energetic, friendly and imaginative Chef with a knack for creating ethnically inspired meals with a Western twist. I earned my degree in Culinary Arts from Johnson & Wales University. I also was lucky enough to study Pan-Asian Cuisine in Singapore. When I am not cooking, I enjoy outdoor activities such as skiing, horseback riding, water sports and exploring new sites. My passion for travel has not only broadened my horizons in the food world but it has given me the opportunity to work aboard the "M/Y THE PROGRAM".

After high school Aaron studied theatre at the University of California in Santa Barbara followed by obtaining a Theatre Degree at Pasadena City College for Music & Theater. During this time Aaron added more skills to the “school of life” - his education included singer, waiter, actor and model; just a few of the areas Aaron became proficient in. However, tides were shifting and so was Aaron who decided to buy a sailboat and sail to Mexico, after which he took a 2 year position as rigger at North Sails in Mexico. Here he gained a tremendous amount of valuable experience, which became a great asset when he joined his first sailing yacht in 2008 and has not looked back.
