Growing up in Indianapolis, Indiana, Aaron showed an interest in making movies at a very young age. At age 10 he acquired his grandfathers digital video camera and shot his first short Cosmic Coffee which was recognized at the Indianapolis Children’s film festival.
His passion for telling stories continued into high school, where he made Vietnam war films in the woods with his friends and claymation adaptations of The Great Gatsby featuring monkeys.
