Weekend Morning Anchor/Reporter

Aaron is thrilled to be back home in California. After high school, he moved to New York City and attended New York University. Aaron’s dorm was a few blocks from the World Trade Center. He was walking to class when the first plane hit the north tower. Later in his career, he would do several stories on the first responders who were there that day.

Aaron interned at ABC News, MTV News and Saturday Night Live. He was eventually hired by Lorne Michaels’ office during his internship.

Aaron went on to work for NY1 News, Spectrum's 24-hour news channel in New York City. He pounded the pavement for 10 years, covering stories as an anchor and reporter. Aaron was also on Staten Island when the surge from Hurricane Sandy came ashore. He was a strong advocate for homeowners throughout the recovery process.

Aaron then produced numerous live shows for the Fox News Channel in New York for 3 years. He was also a main evening anchor for KOTA News in the Midwest, broadcasting in South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska and Montana.

Aaron enjoys helping improve people’s quality of life through his storytelling and promoting a healthy lifestyle. He also loves competing in Crossfit.

One of Aaron’s most memorable stories is helping a mother get an electronic lift for her disabled daughter, who cannot walk. Her condo board would not allow it until Aaron covered the story and kept following up. The mom still thanks him today, 15 years later.
