Aaron is known for his high, pure voice and his fun-loving “can-do” attitude. As the founder of The Exchange, Aaron’s entrepreneurial spirit and knack for brokering unlikely partnerships have taken the group to dozens of countries across five continents. He has played cello since age three and piano since age ten. At twelve, his cello playing earned him the Yo-Yo Ma Music Ambassador Award, for which he had written an essay laying out his career aspirations of becoming an International Music Ambassador! He holds degrees in Voice Performance from The Eastman School and in International Relations from U. Rochester. Aaron is the producer of a documentary film called United We Sing, about a musical humanitarian mission he led in rural Kenya. The film’s message is that music can connect the world and inspire young people to find meaning and direction in their lives. At home, as an answer to cuts in school music programs, Aaron started an inner city a cappella program based on the principles of United We Sing. Aaron’s unapologetic optimism is infectious; he integrates dreams with the pragmatism and work ethic to make sure they happen.
