Born in Virginia, author and screenwriter Aaron Denius Garcia spent his childhood splitting time between Venezuela and the United States. After a disagreement with his baseball coach, Aaron opted to forgo that season and instead try out for the spring play at Annandale High School. Bitten by the acting bug, Aaron attended Virginia Tech and, after graduation, moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in film and television.
After some early success as an actor left him feeling unfilfilled, Garcia took a screenwriting class at Santa Monica college and realized that storytelling was his true passion. He eventually found a home writing for Leverage on TNT, writing for the show for two years before moving on to pursue other ventures, including writing and directing the acclaimed In Sickness and In Health and penning the children’s holiday book Santa’s Plight.
