Aaron’s philosophy is simple: bring like-minded people together in an inspired yet relaxed setting to share food and wine, creating a memorable experience. Born and raised in the Northern Rivers near Byron Bay, he spent the formative years of his career in Brisbane. Feeling the lure of London, he travelled to expand his knowledge and build his career.
Aaron worked as a sous chef at Harvey Nichols’ 5th Floor Restaurant, then decided to pursue the private chef path. Employed as a private chef for Lady Margaret Thatcher in her retirement years, he was lucky enough to serve the Queen on several occasions. He also cooked for many celebrities, among them Kate Moss and Keira Knightly
On his return to Australia, Aaron was welcomed into some of Sydney’s finest establishments, including Astral, Sean’s Kitchen, EST., Felix and Manly Pavilion. He eventually set up his own business, Studio Neon, housed in an eclectic warehouse space that operates as a photo studio and corporate events space by day and chic dining venue by night.
Through Neon Events, Aaron has catered for private dinners in celebrity homes, large festivals for thousands and everything in between, using origin-traceable, local, sustainable and free-range produce wherever possible. He’s also one of the pioneers of the foraged food movement in Australia. His clients include Grey Goose Vodka, Louis Vuitton, Channel 7, Qantas and Tourism Australia.
