With a career ignited in the vibrant music scene of 1988, Aaron embarked on a journey that would shape the industry. Starting at the iconic record havens of VINYL LAB & BLACKMARKET RECORDS in Soho, which propelled Aaron into Club Promotion & A&R at Champion Records.

At Champion Records, Aaron collaborated with legends like Paul Oakenfold, leaving his mark on House/Dance classics such as RAZE‘s ‘Break for Love”, ROBIN S.‘ ‘Show Me Love,’ and SYBIL‘s ‘Don’t Make Me Over.’

Aaron insatiable appetite for music knowledge led him to Rush Management and Def Jam, where they managed renowned acts including Public Enemy, De La Soul, Tribe Called Quest, and LL Cool J to name a few.

Not one to be confined to a single realm, Aaron transitioned seamlessly into football representation, securing over 30 professional playing contracts and managing talent beyond the music sphere, including the iconic Patrick Hutchinson.

In addition to his musical prowess, Aaron is a board member of ADD—Action for Diversity & Development, advocating for inclusion in the creative industry.
