AUDIO PRODUCER + MULTIMEDIA JOURNALIST
My name is Ari and I'm a multimedia journalist, working mainly in audio. I'm a producer at Pineapple Street Studios. Previously, I've worked at This American Life, Serial and KPCC. I'm also the creator and host of the award-winning documentary podcast Blind Landing (named one of The Atlantic's Best Shows of 2021 and winner of a 2023 Ambie Award).
Outside of audio, I've written for publications like The New York Times, The Advocate, Vox and The Wall Street Journal and contributed editorial illustrations to outlets like The New Yorker and The Boston Globe. I've been a finalist for the National Arts & Entertainment Journalist Of The Year Award and the AIPS (International Sports Press Association) Young Reporter Award.
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/hear/taste/watch my projects on the work tab above.
