Brief Biography:

Aaron earned both of his degrees from Central Michigan University’s School of Broadcast and Cinematic Arts. While completing his Masters, he started an independent videography company, and was also selected to serve as lead editor for Shooting Michael Moore, a feature-length documentary that would later play in select theaters around the country. After completing his M.A. coursework, Aaron and his wife relocated to Southern Illinois, where he continued to run his successful videography company. He took on an Associate Producer position at the local ABC affiliate, WSIL-TV3, in 2009, and nine months later was promoted to Weekend Director. He served in that capacity until he accepted the Video Labs Manager position in December of 2013.
