Read about this awesome EDMMC lighting/projection speaker below!
Aron first fell in love with light attending a fine arts high school and through a camera lens. His photographer father taught him how to see light in the world around him and use it to create art at an early age, starting a lifelong obsession. This took him from his native Alabama all over the nation, with stops in Orlando, Las Vegas, Colorado, and Los Angeles. His first endeavors were in theatre and dance lighting before moving to Las Vegas and working in concert and nightlife, after which he moved to Los Angeles to work as a software specialist for the MA Lighting product line at A.C.T Lighting. During this time, he also produced independent light art/creative code works (Paint the Town Red) and freelanced as a programmer on various projects (Krewella 2013 Tour). Since joining SJ Lighting, Aron has spent most of his time programming on the EDM festival circuit (EDC, Paradiso, Ultra Music Festivals) and working on new nightclub installations. When not in front of a console or computer, Aron can be found on his bicycle somewhere outside.
