After graduating, Aaron was selected to attend the Society of Composers’ and Lyricists’ Mentorship Program in Los Angeles where he met with several successful media composers such as Russell Brower (World of Warcraft) and Garry Schyman (Bioshock, Shadow of Mordor).

A solo percussion artist, Aaron composed and produced two albums of electronic music, Synthonica and Spiral, that he has performed in concerts with young musicians. Incorporating his electronic tracks, arrangements and synchronized projected visuals, these programs, along with other original works, were presented with the orchestras of the Las Vegas Young Artists’ Orchestra, K.O.
