At only 15 years old, Aiden has been playing professionally for 6 years. At the tender age 5, he was already playing advanced drums on the video game Rock Band. His musical ability exploded when he began to play on his uncle’s borrowed acoustic drum kit. Soon after, he began taking lessons at Rockstars of Tomorrow Music Academy. His love for music and interest in drumming was noticed at a very early age from his rhythmic banging on empty containers and love for music. At age 9, he was asked to join the young boy band Minor Strut, who will soon hit their 6 year mark!

In summer 2017, Aiden was asked to join the teen band Thursdays In Suburbia, while still playing with Minor Strut. They went on to reach some incredible accolades such as winning the Battle of the Vans Warp Tour 2018 and earning a coveted spot to play on stage. With his contribution to their new self titled EP on the song 'Underworld' and huge following on their YouTube video premier 'Last Chance' with over 19K views. His tenure with TIS ended Winter of 2018.

Aside from playing with a very busy rock band, Aiden loves to play Jazz. He has recently earned First Chair with his High School Jazz Band and Concert Band, an honor rarely bestowed on freshmen. He was also honored with a scholarship at the prestigious Idyllwild Jazz Intensive Summer Camp 2018 and earned several recognitions from RCC Riverside Community College 2018 Competition. Aiden has been recognized for his musical talent and writing ability from his Elementary School as well as Middle School.

His interest include teaching drums since 2016, working out at his Cross Fit gym, going to live concerts, learning to play piano, dabbling on bass, traveling, swimming, baseball, bike riding, skateboarding, air soft battles, cooking, watching movies and of course playing video games with his brother and buddies. He love his sweet dog Taffy and is a crazy Lego builder.

Aiden has been endorsed by Amedia Cymbals USA since 2014.
