Aaron Edwards

Los Angeles, California - United States 28 yrs
One night when he was four, he went sneaking downstairs and watched Aliens on TV while his parents were asleep. After that, he became a big 'ole nerd who couldn't get enough Star Wars, Game of Thrones, James Bond, Star Trek, Marvel, and just about any other geektastic thing out there.

He holds a BA in liberal arts from Sarah Lawrence College and is a screenwriter for movies and television out in LA. He's also a huge history nerd. Seriously, mention the American Revolution or Ancient Rome to him. We dare you.
