About Aaron

Where do I begin...

I was born and raised in Brownsville, Texas. Comic books began my life-long fascination with storytelling. Fantasy novels eventually supplemented the four-color adventures of popular superheroes. By the time I was twelve, I had discovered the works of Robert E. Howard, Michael Moorcock, Fritz Leiber, Frank Herbert, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Edgar Rice Burroughs. Horror movies rounded out my early education in the fantastical.
Then in the summer of 1977 I saw this odd little science fiction movie called Star Wars. That pretty much decided the path I would follow in my adult life. I became fascinated with the process of bringing these stories to life. I moved to Austin in 1985 to attend the University of Texas. After a false start and a hiatus of several years, I returned to the university and received a B.A. in Liberal Arts (English) and a B.S. in Communications (Radio-TV-Film) in 1996.
