She thrives in a fast-paced setting with tight schedules for problem solving, and enjoys the new circumstances of every project with the possibility to explore a new crop of solutions.

"I see myself as a connector. I connect my team to each other and the larger goals toward which they are working. I connect clients to ideas. And I love to connect design to the deeper underlying need or ideal that it communicates."
With experience on a variety of projects in K-12 education, retail, and higher education, Ariel is skilled at working with diverse team members and bringing the group together to attain shared goals. Her passion for education in all its forms developed during her year as a Fulbright Fellow teaching in Taiwan.
