Currently studying music and digital filmmaking at the University of Wisconsin-Superior, Aidan Jones is the founder of Verso L’alto Productions, a freelance studio dedicated to telling stories that point people toward the good, true, and beautiful. Clients include Fr. Samuel Schneider (A Day in the Life of a Superior Priest) and the Cathedral of Christ the King.
The son of two musicians, music has always been a part of Aidan’s life. He played the roll of Frank in the 2021 UWS production of Johann Strauss’s comic operetta Die Fledermaus, and studies vocal performance under Dr. Vicki Fingalson. Aidan enjoys listening to and performing a wide variety of musical styles, and is currently in the process of recording a Christian singer-songwriter EP.
His articles have appeared in multiple publications, including The Chesterton Review. Two of his poems were selected as finalists in the SEEK21 Awaken artist competition, and were later included in Heart unto Heart, a compilation of essays, poems, and short stories published by LoveGood and FOCUS. He is the editor of the UWS music department’s newsletter The Resonant.
In his free time, Aidan enjoys reading, spending time with his family and friends, smoking pipes, and swing dancing.
