Aaron has been working with leather since 2001. While in the army, stationed all over the world, he found that it was a hobby he could take with him to most places. He is now retired from the Army and owns Maker’s Leather Supply in Elm Mott, Texas. Aaron also operates under the business name of Heizer’s Custom Leather, making custom leather goods, and regularly hosts live Facebook how-to videos.
