Aaron Marino Biography (Age)
Aaron was born on May 19, 1976, in the United States of America. Because he keeps his family life away from the public, little is known about his divorced parents. He is an only child and had two stepfathers with whom he did not get along. His mother gave him a fitness membership card at the age of 13, which he claims has changed his life. It is also obvious that he adores her.
His love of fashion apparently began at a very early age when he remembers his first day at kindergarten wearing ribbons around the ankle of his jeans. When he was 7 years old, he had his hair cut by himself and soon after the cut for his neighbor’s children. It’s no wonder that he was voted “Best Dressed” in high school, despite shopping in second-hand shops. He attended college in West Virginia, got a business degree, and then moved to Atlanta, Georgia to live.
In the GA he got a job at Bally’s, where he met his future business partner. The duo opened a grocery store, but Aaron was cheated when it became successful and he left with low self-esteem. After counseling, he became co-owner of another grocery store but left again because his partner was selling drugs in the back room. It was at this point that he set out to fulfill his dream of becoming a coach. He met a woman who helped him to get rid of overweight and together they opened a gym, but due to financial and legal problems it finally closed down.
The good thing about the gym was that he met a man, Steve, who asked him for his opinion on what to wear on a date. This was the beginning of his journey as a stylist.
Who Is Aaron Marino Wife? Is He Gay?
Aaron Marino married Tracey Woodard Marino in 2007. They were together for five years before they got married, and it’s been eleven years now. She’s out of the public eye because Aaron insists he opened up and not her. They don’t have children together yet.
Tracey was born on January 22nd, 1976. According to her profile on LinkedIn, she is an experienced business development and marketing expert. Having worked with Smallwood Reynolds Stewart Stewart, Precision 2000, Inc., and Contour Engineering, LLC in the past, she is currently Corporate Marketing Director at NOVA Engineering and Environmental, LLC.
As a man who runs a men’s styling blog, Aaron is expected to inevitably receive and even be labeled as an advancement by the gay community. This perception is reinforced by the fact that he appears in some videos as a drag queen ‘date’. He once said that his wife likes to make jokes about him being a gay man with a heterosexual penis. And that’s all there is to say about it!
Aaron stands at a height of 5 feet 6 inches and by social standards, he is a small man. However, he is a small man with a lot of self-confidence, who has built the same in other seemingly small men and others. He is said to be one of the few little men who take pride in their size and “flaunt” it.
