The former lead mechanic of Gas Monkey Garage, Aaron has come a long way from his early days. Now, Aaron stars in his show entitled, Shifting Gears with Aaron Kaufman. His most recent endeavor came in the form of Aaron Needs A Job, which allowed him to tour the states whilst featuring people with interesting jobs. Today, we take a closer look at the daily life of Aaron Kaufman.
Aaron Kaufman was born on the 26th of January 1982 in Crowley, Texas, USA. Aaron has remained tight-lipped about his early life including his parents. From an early age, Aaron showed interest in cars and had an aptitude for mechanics. Similar to his counterpart Richard Rawlings, Aaron finished his high-school and started working in automobiles.
Putting his schooling days behind, Aaron began working as a mechanic and landed his first job as a mechanic in Hot Rod Garage. Recognized for his incredible craftsmanship, Aaron quickly climbed the ranks at Hot Rod Garage and was their best mechanic. In an incredible turn of fate, Aaron ended up collaborating with Richard Rawlings. A relatively unknown Richard and Aaron collaborated on a project which led to a fruitful business relationship.
Aaron started working as Richard’s assistant at the Gas Monkey Garage and climbed to the position of Master Mechanic. Aaron became a reality star after the Gas Moneky garage was approached for a potential TV series. This gave a significant boost to Aaron’s popularity and net worth. In 2017, Aaron left the series wanting to start something of his own. He starred as a lead man in a new series Shifting Gears with Aaron Kaufman. The series failed to gather any significant attention and received mixed reviews.
In due time, Aaron established his own company by the name of Arclight which focused solely on building the Ford F-100 trucks.
The man has an estimated net worth of USD 6million. From the way things are going, we are sure the number will increase significantly in the coming years.
