Aaron and I met at a workshop a couple years ago. There was an energy about this guy that was just infectious. Our small group of Adelaide light painters was just that, small. It didn't take long before Aaron was hanging out and creating magic. Whether it is the joy of youth, a passion for getting out, or just a love of light, Aaron is a guy that has been right by my side, both having fun, and more and more as an amazing mentor at our light painting workshops. With a heart the size of Texas and energy to burn, it is my pleasure to highlight a bit of Aaron's amazing work here.
