Howzit, I’m Aaron.

I was born and raised on Oahu, went to Aina Haina, then Punahou, then to the mainland for college, came back to take care of family matters, taught math at some local high schools (Punahou, Kaiser, Roosevelt), and now I’m here. I’m a  (current_year – 2017) year grad student working with Ben Shappee on a supernova project.

For the past couple years my favorite genre of music has been Japanese shoegaze. I like Mass of the Fermenting Dregs and イツエ in particular. My favorite hike is a short little walk Pele’s chair to the Makapu’u tidepools (Use caution if the tide or surf looks bad). Zippy’s is the best. I think pathfinder > dnd 3.5 > dnd 5 > dnd 4. I haven’t tried pathfinder 2 yet.
