Aaron Vorbau
Transition to Asia Consultant

Aaron grew up in Bay Area, California. His father worked as a pilot for commercial airlines and from a young age, Aaron began traveling globally. While attending Cal Poly (SLO) he volunteered as a youth mentor and currently spends his free time serving through internship and mentorship programs. He met Rachael in 2007 shortly after both of them completed their MA degrees and within a year they were married and moved to China. They now have four children who consider Peter Hall faculty housing their “home” even though they are on the road 6+ months of the year outside of China. I am in the US for 5 months of the year during the Winter to connect in person. I look forward to hearing from you!
