About Me


So, that’s me over there - Ariel! I grew up in Oceanside, CA and basically went to the beach all the time as a kid. I could have lived at the beach! After going to ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, CA for my BFA in photography, I knew I needed to be back at the beach, so I moved to Long Beach soon after graduation. My days are spent editing or shooting and then walking on the beach at sunset with my guy, Patrick. He and I have been together forever, he’s the best, funniest person I know. On our off days, we live for getting brunch at our favorite spot in Downtown Long Beach, Berlin. Then we usually go to an art museum - we’re members at LACMA and MOCA. Our guilty pleasure is rewatching Parks and Rec or It’s Always Sunny for the millionth time. We love camping and hiking and have been to Sedona and Joshua Tree and have plans to head to Utah and Big Sur next!
