Visiting Artist: Aaron Christensen
Aaron is a world renown blogger and writer for HorrorHound Magazine who’s life’s passion for enjoying horror film has led him into a full-time career in the industry. He spoke passionately about following your dreams. As someone who loves horror films, the idea of watching them as a career is something most of us wouldn’t think about, but his message was one of true hope and inspiration that, no matter what it is that you love, if you follow your heart’s path to its end, your dreams (no matter how strange) are surely attainable.
One of the Midwest’s rising enthusiasts of horror films/monster movies, Aaron has born witness to over 3000 fright flick titles (and counting), scouring the mainstream, foreign markets, and fringe indies for that next big thrill.

He can also be seen onscreen in the award-winning survival thriller Dead Weight and numerous other short films.
