More about Aaron Small

First Strokes

I began paddling with the Seattle Canoe and Kayak Club when I was 11, and haven’t set my paddle down since.

Off the Water

When I am not paddling, I can be found studying Oceanography and American Sign Language, running, cooking, exploring the outdoors, and dreaming of dogs.
