Aaron Goodwin was born in Portland, Oregon on April 1, 1976. He is the equipment technician, camera operator, co-host and a co-investigator on Ghost Adventures. In need of a cameraman for their documentary, Nick Groff introduced him to Zak Bagans to assist them with primary filming and B-roll taping.
Before joining Zak Bagans and Nick Groff, Goodwin had worked as a camera operator for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and several behind-the-scenes film premieres in Las Vegas. Before his experiences at Virginia City, Nevada, he “never really thought twice about ghosts.” Goodwin looks perpetually terrified on the show and now considers himself “a 100 percent – no, a 1,000 percent – believer.” Often left alone on “Hot Spots” within the locations under investigation, Goodwin is often used as “bait” to attract supposed Ghostly Spirits.
At Preston Castle, the crew claimed that marks which appeared on Goodwin’s left leg were similar to those that appeared on Bagan’s back during the first Bobby Mackey’s Music World nightclub investigation.
In a follow-up episode (“Return to Bobby Mackey’s Music World” in season 4), Bagans asked Goodwin if he believes that their first investigation of the nightclub in the first season affected his personal life. Goodwin answered that he was “80 percent” sure that the effects of the investigation ended his marriage. He said that he and his ex-wife had nightmares that were related to Bobby Mackey’s Music World and spoke of how these nightmares affected their relationship. Aaron also had indicated that his former wife would report to him that she was being attacked by something evil, while Aaron was on the road. According to that series of statements, Aaron indicated that while his ex-wife and he remain best friends, they did end their marriage in an effort to remove her from being affected.
At the Winchester Mystery House, an experiment was set up to communicate with demonic entities at Bobby Mackey’s Music World and Washoe Club through very low frequencies, using coil antennae, as well as satellite communication. Due to his nausea and fatigue, along with overall feelings of dread, it was evident Aaron was the prime target of these demonic attacks, and was simultaneously mentioned in multiple E.V.P.’s at Bobby Mackey’s Music World 2400 miles away during their investigation.
