A proud native of the bluegrass state, Aaron was thrilled to follow his hobby of pipe smoking down south to the legendary blending tables of Cornell & Diehl. Though all of our guys and gals are cross-trained to lend a hand wherever needed, Aaron is our Assistant Manager and blending lead. He's responsible for overseeing the meticulous process of taking our various kinds of processed tobacco and combining them in very specific ratios to ultimately transform them into your favorite boutique blends. When not looking excessively jolly in photos or leaning on Perique barrels, he takes pleasure in watching movies with his wife, Rachel, lifting heavy things, hiking up mountains, playing music, and, of course, oiling his beard. Aaron is currently finishing up a Bachelor of Arts in Bible, so the writings of C.S. Lewis and a leather-bound Greek New Testament sport the most worn covers on his bookshelf. While learning to like sunsets and long walks on the beach, he also enjoys chamber music and ten-pin bowling.
