Aaron joined the Indiana Wildlife Federation in 2016 as a Habitat Programs Coordinator. Born and raised in Indiana, he received a degree in computer graphics from Purdue and moved to Oregon. While there, his love of nature was rekindled and, after 4 years, he and his wife decided to move back home so he could pursue a degree in Environmental Science from IU. Aaron has worked with field geologists and as an intern for the Indiana government, but his real passion is working for non-profit organizations. He loves to spend his free time hiking, snowboarding, camping, and gardening.
