Aaron is a story-teller from Blackburn and he often blends working with real people and actors, with unscripted and improvised performances, street casting and often non-professional young actors.

His first student short, Throw Me to the Dogs, won 10 awards on the festival circuit. It was distributed worldwide via MUBI, and awarded a 'Best of the Month' Staff Pick on Vimeo.

He was nominated for the BFI Future-Film-Fest ‘Best Director’ Award, and his work has recently been featured on MTV for VOXI.

Aaron’s latest film, T.W.A.T. is a short documentary. T.W.A.T. stands for Tandem With A Trailer and the film features a young lad called Alfie. The BBC saw the initial edit-selects and asked to showcase it for their strand "Give Me A Voice". They launched the film on the BBC3 Facebook page under the title Alfie, The Odd Job Boy of Clitheroe. It was shared over two thousand times and received over 5 million views in the first 3 days.
