Dwayne Paro welcomes Aaron Wolf to today’s podcast. Aaron Wolf is the founder of Adventures Accessed, an outfitting and guide company based out of Chicago. Through his work, Aaron's goal is to help others build a meaningful connection to nature through immersive, experiential programs that incite natural curiosity and empower members to overcome challenges. Aaron works in partnership with the National Forest Service as a licensed outfitter/guide and is also a brand ambassador for Lewis N. Clark and volunteers as an ambassador for the Alliance for the Great Lakes.

Before Aaron was hugging trees he worked in advertising, which was his field of study at DePaul University in Chicago. He didn't care too much for corporate culture and found it counterproductive to his transition from the Marines, which led him to start Adventures Accessed. Serving in the Marines from 2004-2008, Aaron was in the field artillery based out of Camp Lejeune, NC. His unit toured in Okinawa and Japan as well as Iraq in 2007 where his unit transitioned from artillery to a provisional military police task force.

Aaron is from the Chicagoland area and still calls the city home.
