It was a near-death experience that catalyzed actor and model Jayson Aaron. The L.A. native attended a college party that changed the entire trajectory of his life.

 

After confronting notions of death and the afterlife, Jayson decided it was more important to live in the now. He travels as often as he’s home and has designed his life on his own terms. From traveling the world to choosing a career path, Jayson says that he wants to follow his passions.

 

“My work is definitely influenced by the places I’ve been,” Jayson says. “Other places resonate with my spirit more than where I’m actually from.”
