Firstly Aaron, what do you do?
I take pictures. Primarily of snowboarding right now, but I like shooting any moments or trips surrounding lifestyle in the outdoors.
Where are you from?
I’m from Boston, but I just moved into Portland, OR. So much to do here!
What do you look forward to most in the summer?
The long days are the best - the sun’s out forever! There’s so many activities you can do in a day.
So many activities is right! Which summer activities do you enjoy doing most?
I like riding bikes the best. Mountain bikes, road bikes, city cruisin’ bikes. I’m down for any camping trips for the most part. I’m down to just hang in town and party and barbecue too..
Barbecue has to be the ultimate summer activity. Do you have a killer recipe you can share with us?
I’ve never really eaten meat, so I’m pretty down for grilling vegetables - portabellas and stuffed peppers are top notch.
I also heard you’re on a futsal team this summer how did that come about?
My friends Ami & Colleen invited me to join their co-ed team this summer. I haven’t played soccer since I was 13 or so, and tonight's the first game - I’ll let you know how it goes.
After all the activities are said and done do you have any hobbies that don’t require as much energy?
I play guitar - love doing that.
So it is safe to say you are into music. Are there any bands or artists you’re into this summer?
Not really any new summer hits - just been listening to a bunch of old blues and bluegrass as usual… Current favorites would be Lightning Hopkins for blues, and Jorma Kaukonen for bluegrass.
