Aaron Shields

Seattle-born Aaron originally joined Casino.org's review team in 2018, after tiring of freelance journalism. We loved his enthusiasm and endless ideas for features, so he moved departments to write full time for the blog. From betting tips to the latest transfer rumors, he's our go-to guy for all things sport-related. After unexpectedly falling in love while studying for his Masters in London, Aaron officially left the US to move in with his wife Natasha. On weekends you can usually find him on his bike, attempting to beat his personal best for the loop around Richmond Park.
