Armed with lens

The real paranormal investigators operate differently than the ones in movies. Instead of using crosses and holy water, the investigators often use high-tech equipment to listen to the audio. But unlike most of his peers who use audio interfaces, Aaron uses a camera. He is the team’s official cameraman and travels to haunted locations around the world, documenting his experiences on a camera. Even though Aaron first joined the reality TV series to help out with primary filming and B-roll taping, he soon established himself as one of the regular cast members of the series.

Signature phrase and Memorable Experiences

The number one lesson of investing in the paranormal is to be ready to be spooked. On the set of Ghost Adventures, Aaron has had his fair share of memorable experiences. The first of those experiences was at Preston Castle, where three marks similar to the “scratches” on Bagan’s back at Bobby Mackey’s, appeared on the back of Goodwin’s left leg as he felt them. The second was much scarier as Aaron was possessed by an entity that possibly traveled from Bobby Mackey’s Music World to the site of the experiment. Aaron is also known for his signature phrase “Dude”, which he says more than 20 times in a single episode. The increasing number count for his catchphrase is also because he is often left alone ins ghost hotspots.

Life Before Ghost Adventures

Aaron may have risen to fame following his appearances in Ghost Adventures, but he was working with a camera for a long time.

Born and raised in Oregon, Aaron fell in love with the camera from a young age and taught himself how to edit video and operate a camera. Over the years, Aaron worked for several sporting events and also covered red carpets. So when Zak came looking for a cameraman, Aaron was in a perfect position to fill that void.
