Born in Buenos Aires and raised in South America by adventurous parents, Ari’s creativity was guided and molded by the diversely vivid cultures of Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, and Brazil. Her ambition to be that drop responsible for a ripple effect led her to take on the Project Manager’s role for Overseas Missions at only sixteen. There she created programs ranging from laughter therapy in children’s cancer and severe burn-trauma hospital wards to developing awareness and facilitating group outings for the visually impaired. She also designed innovative and educational interactive platforms for young girls who had suffered abuse.
Ari took her passion for contributing on an adventure to San Diego, where she worked for the non-profit Family Care Foundation and occupied herself with tsunami relief and rebuilding. The ever-expanding ripples sent her off to Puerto Rico, where she collaborated in low-income communities and learned to love the magical sound of the coquí as she sipped a coquito under the tropical stars. Ariana currently resides in Chicago, IL, working as a freelance copywriter and visual artist. Her vast travels and experiences have shaped her artistic expression, and she now utilizes creativity as a medium to drive action and inspire change. Result-driven, Ari strives to provide a holistic and novel approach to storytelling.
Multiple citizenships and international living are to blame for her travel addiction and mural hunting skills. A member of Sigma Tau Delta International English Honors Society, Ari is a Magna Cum Laude 2020 graduate from Benedictine University with a dual major B.A. in Writing and Publishing & Communication Arts.
