Introducing our Executive Board Member

Aaron McPeck is a fifth year PhD candidate in musicology with a dissertation focusing on representations of identity in music videos. More broadly, Aaron works with popular music and its intersections with race, gender, and sexuality. A classical double bassist by training, Aaron spent four years between graduating from the Eastman School of Music and arriving at CWRU developing a professional career in Missoula, MT, and spent another two years in Seattle, WA. Attesting to his strong belief in community service and social justice, Aaron served with AmeriCorps*VISTA and worked for the National Coalition Building Institute chapter in Missoula. Outside of school, Aaron enjoys board games, reading (yes, even after schoolwork!), and all things tech-related. When not lurking in a coffee shop, you can often find him walking the streets of Little Italy with his dog, Shelly.
