During his time at the University of Kansas, he and some of his colleagues chased storms across Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Missouri, and Iowa. After the Super Outbreak of 2011, Aaron and his colleagues raised $3000 and collected food and water to take to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, which was ravaged by and EF4 tornado on April 27, 2011.

When he isn’t forecasting, Aaron enjoys swimming, running, and cheering on the Kansas Jayhawks.
