AUDIO PRODUCER + MULTIMEDIA JOURNALIST
First of all: Hello! Welcome to my site! I made this with Wix and would not recommend it! I really wish I had used Squarespace instead! Wix is overly complicated and bad at loading media! Learn from my mistakes!
A little bit about me: My name is Ari. The first image on the left is a photo of me as a five-year-old living in Jerusalem. The picture below that is me present-day.
As you can see, I still have the same Spock-like ears but none of the same teeth. I lost the water bottle I'm holding in the second photo approximately five minutes after the picture was taken, and have gone on to lose a dozen more water bottles since (not a joke, just a true fact!)
About my work: I do a lot of different things. First and foremost, I'm an audio producer. I work as an assistant producer at KPCC 89.3, the NPR Los Angeles affiliate. At the station, I report and produce stories for The Frame, Take Two, AirTalk and FilmWeek. I also make reported stories for other NPR stations like KCRW and WHYY.
When I'm not making public radio, I'm usually writing and drawing: As a writer, I've contributed toThe Wall Street Journal, New York Magazine, InStyle and LAist. As an artist, my editorial illustrations have appeared in The Boston Globe, AARP and Longreads. Before joining KPCC, I was a documentary producer at Optimist Films.
If you've made it this far, then you're probably my dad, reading this to remember what it is that I do for a living, or someone looking to collaborate. Either way, you can see/watch/hear my projects on the work tab above.
