Aaron Townsend

I am a 36 year old who has had a wide variety of experiences over my lifetime. I have been a taxi cab driver, an over the road truck driver, a salesperson and so much more.

My passions in life are writing, photography, web design and travel. I have been to over 20 different countries spanning 3 different continents and I am proficient in both English and German.

I grew up in the industrial town of Midland Michigan, and at the age of 10 I moved to Germany where I stayed for nearly 5 years. I attended the International school of Hamburg for the first six months until my German was passable, at which point I moved to a local school.

I have been married and divorced and have an amazing daughter whom I love very much. I am currently living in Texas and working in the oilfields as a vacuum truck driver.
