In the music industry for almost 20 years, Aaron cut his teeth working with some heavy hitters. He engineered album projects for musical artists ranging from folk singers Shawn Colvin and Suzanne Vega to hip hop talent Mos Def. As a composer, he has made music for TV networks including HBO, NatGeo, Discovery, PBS and TLC. And let’s not forget his audio work on video games, independent films, and commercials for brands like Polaris, CarQuest, Travelocity and Georgia Pacific.
Not a big fan of flying, nowadays Aaron likes to keep things interesting on the ground at Trailblazer Studios. He heads up our music department, focusing on music composition and production. He also provides recording, editing, and mixing for our clients in advertising, TV, film and video gaming.
Oh, and he’s also known for his cheese biscuits. Some say they even rival those of our resident studio chef Garye Costner’s famous delicacies.
Aaron began his career as an assistant engineer in music studios in New York City during the mid ’90s, and moved up the ranks from there. All the while, he was playing in bands and learning his craft of composing and audio engineering from music pros like Mitchell Froom, Eddie Kramer and John Leventhal.
In the early 2000s Aaron moved in to audio post, working on TV commercials for Kill Bill, Cold Mountain, Gangs of New York and Chicago, as well as TV shows for VH1 and MTV. He joined Trailblazer Studios in 2004.
Aaron earned his B.A. in Art History/Photography at Bard College and his M.M. in Music Business and Technology at New York University.
