It could be said that Aaron has spent his life in the golf cart industry. At just five years old he was spending time at his dad’s dealership in Austin, TX.

He later opened his own dealership in Austin and Liberty Hill, TX. He most-recently launched his dealer-focused brand of accessories called MODZ.
