Growing up a musician, he began playing professionally at the age of 15, and eventually moved to New York City. Once there, he started playing in a wide variety of bands and performed in many different venues ranging from Birdland to CBGB's, as well as working as a studio musician. He has done production work for Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, and as a composer, has written for film, theater, and dance.
In 2010 he met Pauline Oliveros who introduced him to the wonderful world of Max through her Expanded Instrument System. This led to an unprecedented shift in artistic paradigm for Aaron as he discovered the nearly endless possibilities of creative coding. In 2011, along with Kiori Kawai, he founded Purring Tiger, a multi-cultural, multimedia, experimental performance group dedicated to bringing people together in the context of art, in a subtext of wonder.
When not working on creative projects Aaron enjoys biking around Brooklyn, being in nature, and Vipassana meditation.
