A forward pocket specialist, Lord made his league debut in 1994 with Geelong. After three seasons with the Cats he moved to Hawthorn where he enjoyed his most prolific time up forward. He kicked a bag of 6 goals five times in his career and his best season tally came in 1999 when he topped Hawthorn's goalkicking with 42 goals. In 2002 he returned to Geelong at pick one in the pre-season draft before retiring at the end of the following season.

In 2004 Aaron was part of a reality TV show The Resort. The show had 15 young people renovating a holiday resort in Fiji. The show was a ratings disaster and Aaron admitted to being a little scarred from the whole reality TV experience.[1]

He later found employment with the sports attache at the Australian Embassy in Paris and late as a senior adviser to the Victorian sports minister. Following from that, Aaron pursued a casual position as a bar tender at the Noosa Beach House Peter Kuruvita Bar, located at the Sheraton Noosa Resort & Spa.
