"Through the... process, we saw these unique individuals come out of their shells and work together to create an entertaining, heartfelt, funny, and enlightening piece of musical theater. It was astonishing and truly worthy of the standing ovation the kids received at the end of their final performance"
Aaron Feinstein Director of the Miracle Project New York

In 2004 while living in Los Angeles, Aaron met Elaine Hall, who encouraged him to bring his passion and talents in theater and music to the autism community. Aaron was co-director with Elaine of the pilot Miracle Project after-school program, which became the subject of the 2 time Emmy award winning documentary “Autism: The Musical”
