Aaron's performances have been described as “being characterized by very creative musical insight coupled with a virtuoso delivery." (Tim Day, San Francisco Symphony Principal Flute) He has performed as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestra member throughout the United States in great venues such as the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, and Severance Hall.  He was honored to have recently been selected to appear as Young Artist in Residence on Performance Today, an American Public Media radio series hosted by Fred Child.  

Originally from Colorado, Aaron grew up in a rural town with a population of 300 and began playing the flute at age nine.  He later went on to study with Jeanne Baxtresser at Carnegie Mellon University where he received his bachelor's degree.  As a freshman, Aaron won the Carnegie Mellon University Concerto Competition and was the only winner selected among all instruments and degree levels.  He was also one of 30 students out of a class of 1400 to be selected as an Andrew Carnegie Scholar. 

Aaron went on to win top prizes in a number of prestigious competitions including the Hellam Young Artist Competition and the Young Texas Artists Competition.  He has spent summer seasons with the Spoleto Festival USA, the National Repertory Orchestra, and Music Academy of the West, where he spent three summers and appeared as a concerto soloist.  As a Da Camera of Houston Young Artist Fellow, Aaron acquired the skills and passion for engaging a wide variety of audiences.  In addition to performing extensively in leading concert venues throughout Houston, Aaron performed in many inner city schools and worked with autistic children during an eight-week residency at the Monarch School, Houston's leading school for children with neurological differences.

He completed his Master of Music degree at Rice University and is currently pursuing his doctorate studying with Leone Buyse.  He is also a private flute teacher, holding a studio of 12 students of diverse ages and backgrounds.
