In 1997, Aaron was the recipient of the 1997 Milos Forman award for his screenplay THE FILE ROOM and recently won the spring 2012 Award of Excellence from the Best Shorts Competition in the category of humor. Aaron has received accolades from prominent industry figures such as former Dreamworks executive Bob Cooper and indie mogul Roger Corman for his comedic filmmaking in the short, THE MALADY. In addition to his off-camera work, Aaron has played roles in two independent feature films, including SHOW ME THE ALIENS as well as shorts, promos and stage productions in New York and Los Angeles.
