I'm Aaron, The Unemployed Alcoholic.

While it took a lifetime of decisions to earn this title, it took only 18 months to embrace it and figure out how to help others through it.

Eighteen months felt like a long time as I pursued recovery while facing rejection from the job market, identity crisis, depression and anxiety.  But looking back, it seems like just the blink of an eye given the healing I experienced and the purpose I found.

Now I am a comedian, a speaker and a recovery support partner who finds the humor in my own challenges while drawing upon a unique blend of transparency and boldness to approach sensitive topics in an entertaining and encouraging way.

I am an openly Christian man. I'm far from perfect, but I do my best to love God and those around me.

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
— Mathew 22:36-39 (NIV)

I approach comedy, speaking and recovery support in a nonthreatening way by sharing my stories and the lessons I've learned while respecting other peoples' boundaries and decisions. 

I developed and follow the REAL Support model and will not judge, criticize or attempt to control people.  Click here to read more about REAL Support.
