About Ariana

I am an artist and multimedia producer interested in audio documentary, narrative podcasts, and experimental projects. I have produced radio feature stories for BBC 4's Short Cuts and BBC Radio 3's The Essay, worked on long-form narrative series such as Brain on Nature and Queer Public, and have contributed to experimental broadcast radio programs like KCRW's The Organist, WFMU's The Blind Tourist, and WFMU's Radio Row. I have has also worked with producers at Pineapple Street Media on shows such as Prism: Tales of Your City, The Clearing, Julie, and Headlong: Surviving Y2K.  In 2018, I was named a New Voices Scholar by the Association for Independents in Radio and received the Signal to Noise Award from Gilded Audio and UnionDocs. I was a 2019 Third Coast Radio Resident at the Ragdale Foundation and served on the Third Coast Conference Community Advisory Board. In 2019, I presented work at HearSay Festival in Kilfinane, Ireland, and LUCIA Festival in Florence, Italy. In addition to my audio work, I regularly use my skills as a visual artist to assist those in the radio community. From illustration, graphics, and branding (see Field Recordings, the Treasury, and the special edition cassette tape for Constellations: FEEL THE SKY) to video and animation (see SFMoMA's Raw Material: Six Degrees and Clean Water Wanted with Benny Becker for the Ohio Valley Resource), I am excited by visual projects of all kinds. I am most interested in story editing and sound design roles, with a preference for long-form documentary, fiction, or experimental feature stories. I also place a high value on work that amplifies emerging and underrepresented voices in the field. I am eager to work with and learn from others involved in initiatives that improve workplace conditions and foster creative community
