Greene Space, Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and other venues.
While earning a Bachelor of Music in Music Technology from New York University, Aaron trained at the legendary Sear Sound under composer and studio founder Walter Sear, then as assistant engineer for tracking and mixing sessions at Stratosphere Sound with Chief Engineer Geoff Sanoff. Aaron has worked on albums such as Wilco's A Ghost is Born, Hem's Eveningland and Norah Jones' Feels Like Home, with producers including Arif Mardin, Jim O'Rourke, Ethan Johns, Daniel Rey, Adam Schlesinger and Gary Maurer.
In addition to live events and broadcasts, Aaron currently produces the weekly McGraw-Hill Companies Young Artists Showcase, and the summer series Concerts from the Frick Collection.
