Coming Soon: To the End and Back


Since my diagnosis I have been on a search for greater purpose and a way to give back.  It isn't something that I forced but rather just kept myself open to any potential oppurtunities as I focused on recovery.  A big part of my recovery was my writing, and so I decided to write a book.  I mentioned it in passing here on the blog but I am happy to announce today that the book is complete and will soon be available for download. 

I have realized that this book was my oppurtunity to give back and make a difference.  Not only by sharing what I feel is a very powerful and inspirational message but also through giving back to the cancer community.  I plan to offer this as a "Pay What you Want" download platform which each person will have the oppurtunity to donate any amount they want for the book, which I will in turn donate to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.


Not-So-Final Reflections from a Cancer Survivor

My story is about so much more than the leukemia. Being diagnosed with B-Cell
Philadelphia Positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at 28 years old was a slap in the face. Plain and simple. I felt like I’d been robbed. I was angry. Confused. Terrified. I didn’t know it then, but I was one of the lucky ones.


Throughout my battle with leukemia, I learned deeply impactful life lessons only a cancer survivor can. This got me thinking: why should cancer patients be the only ones privy to these lessons? No matter our journey or stage in life, we should all be given the opportunity to learn from tragedy.

My story is about more than the leukemia. It’s about surviving – no, thriving – in the face of tragedy.

On February 4th, 2010, I was diagnosed with B-Cell PhiladelphiavPositive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. and began the fight of my life.

To the End and Back: Lessons Learned Through Tragedy is an intensely honest, matter-of-fact documentation of Aaron’s battle and lessons learned. His insights are sure to evoke reflection of the deepest kind and, most importantly, inspire action.

ISPC - Help Needed





I have been a little lacking on the blog lately, life has just been super hectic lately and this unfortunately was one of the things that needed to take a back seat. As many of you know I always set a goal of entering two photographic competitions a year.

When choosing competitions I always like to stretch myself and enter competitions that I really don't expect to win. I do this so that I am always humbling myself and pushing to continually improve my skills to hopefully one day win.

This January I spent the month preparing my submission for a competition that I have never entered before. The International Street Photography Competition. There are two different parts to the competition. The first and bigger part is a juried competition based on a series of images. The second is a public vote on a single imgae where they will have one winner per country.

This is where I could use each of your help and support. The image at the top of this post is the image I entered into the public vote for the best image from Canada. If you like the photo, I would love if you could vote for my photo.
