Aden brings people together. He connects the dots, fill the gaps, solves the puzzles, expands the ideas, supports the talent, protects the precious, and he does it all under the umbrella of creativity. Whether through directing and editing video content, overseeing design, or just sitting with a client to figure out how exactly what they need, even if they don't quite know it yet.

He has edited four feature films (three narratives, one documentary) and two short films.

Aside from on-screen work, he has performed on stage at Cedar Lake, Dixon Place, Invisible Dog, and BAX. He is the founder of Silver Crown, a Brooklyn-based production/creative agency.
