Aaron Bierman has been a storyteller his whole life.
As a kid, Aaron shot Super 8 films, wrote and drew comic books and was a breakdancer in the streets and clubs of New York City during the early days of hip hop. As he grew older, Aaron didn’t see his creative pursuits as a way to make a living so with student loans to pay off, he pursued a career on Wall Street.
While working as a trader at JP Morgan, Aaron’s distinctive market commentary and storytelling skills cultivated a loyal following of clients and were featured in various media including The Wall Street Journal & ABC News.
Aaron was working in finance for over a decade when he read a New York Times article about a playground basketball legend that would change his life forever. The story inspired him to make a film about the man’s life. Three years later, “Release: The Jack Ryan Story,” was sold to 20th Century Fox and Aaron was given a writing deal to develop additional projects with the studio. Aaron quit his corporate job to become a full-time filmmaker in 2010 and was signed by the Gersh Agency soon after.
Since leaving Wall Street, Aaron has completed the Professional Screenwriting Program at U.C.L.A’s School of Film & Television, written over a dozen feature screenplays, directed award-winning short films and developed feature film projects with producers including Warner Brothers, Anonymous Content, Studio 8 and 20th Century Fox.
