"I’m at a point in my life that i enjoy sharing my creations and joy with my fans. I love to share my projects and create videos for you. I have several exciting avenues by which you can share in the invention process, watch daily projects and interact directly with me! To date my behind the scenes video subscibers have enjoyed 2-5 videos per week, literally every project to come through the Creative Engineering doors, from soup to nuts. What’s best, I’m not just asking people to watch me invent, but if you want to be a creative person, inventive person, a free thinker, inventor, to be happy, healthy, driven. We can interact, you can tap into my mind and process, and take from it what works for you. There’s something to gain, from what I have to offer." -- Aaron Fechter

The Rock-afire Explosion (Showbiz Pizza) is the survivor of the Chuck E. Cheese/Rock-afire animatronic wars. So, anyone who thinks CEC beat Showbiz should realize that my leaving Showbiz Pizza Place and taking my band with me was a move I made to insure its survival, and now, WE WON! We were also the only band that showed any respect of its audience. -- Aaron
