Digital Content Marketing Coordinator

Aaron is originally from North Carolina but relocated to Charleston, SC, from Appalachia in 2013. Over the years, he pursued a career that would somehow combine his three greatest passions: fly fishing, travel, and writing. With publications spanning the outdoor space, including The Drake, The Fly Fish Journal, Fly Fisherman, Tail, Shallow Water Angler, and more, Aaron’s ambitions paid off with the Digital Content Marketing Coordinator role at Yellow Dog.

A husband and father, Aaron treasures spending time with his wife, son, and two german pointers. A saltwater fiend, he considers Belize, Mexico, and The Bahamas to be his “happy place,” both for the fishing and their respective cultures. In his free time, he can be found tying flies or fishing in The Lowcountry or nearby Appalachia.
