Aaron grew up on the ski slopes, mountain trails and soccer
fields of Boise, ID. Attended the University of Idaho where he spent some time
studying landscape design in Italy and went on to earn a degree in Landscape

kids he and Kristi joyously raise- 3 girls and a boy who love the ski slopes,
mountain trails and soccer fields as much as he does.
As of 2016 Aaron is very happy to be back with the CSGI team!
