Aaron Raz Link is a native Nebraskan, a writer, teacher, and interdisciplinary artist. As well as an MFA in creative writing, he is probably the only person to be both a historian of science and a graduate of clown school. He has created two interactive public exhibits: a collection of family stories provided by visitors, and an ethnographic exhibit of the very little known Outremer people. He has worked in exhibits and education for major natural history museums, toured internationally as a member of the puppetry ensemble Lunatique Fantastique, and taught in venues from homeless service agencies to PhD programs. What Becomes You, part of Tobias Wolff's American Lives series from the University of Nebraska Press, was a Lambda Literary Award finalist in two categories.

Currently, he is an assistant professor at the Pacific Northwest College of Art. His most recent project is a nonfiction book about travel, transformation, and the history of vaudeville.
