Ari is an actor, award-winning writer & musician, dedicated to telling stories that reflect people from all walks of life — especially under-represented voices.
His debut indie film, SOUND/VISION, won the Audience Award for Best Short Film at East Lansing Film Festival. It has also screened at 15 U.S. and international festivals, including ITVFest; San Jose International Short Film Festival (U.S Premiere); SOHO International Film Festival (NY Premiere); and Thessaloniki LGBTQ Film Festival (European Premiere);.
As an actor, Ari’s television and film credits include principal roles in multiple CollegeHumor viral videos, guest stars on the hit webseries Missed Connections Live (Best Comedy Series: LA WebFest & StayTunedTV) and recurring on the classic soap opera One Life To Live (ABC).
Ari has also appeared in a variety of national and international commercial & print campaigns for Fortune 500 companies like Pfizer, Chevron and Prudential.
Currently, Ari is developing a slew of new projects, including BEHIND THE CEREAL: a digital comedy series that charts the rise & fall of America's iconic breakfast cereal mascots; Nain Rouge: a social horror feature set in the great city of Detroit; and a solo show about his adventures as a straight-edged, classical pianist with a secret online life in M4M chat rooms (remember AOL Instant Messenger and Compuserve?).
