Hi, I'm Ariel.

I'm a design leader focused on solving complex challenges.

I currently serve the New York City Mayor’s Office for Economic Opportunity as Director of Design and Product.

Our team is improving service delivery and advancing equity and opportunity for all New Yorkers.

We are the nation's first municipal Service Design Studio focused on low-income residents. We also build best in class digital products to connect and deliver services.

I'm an alumna of Parsons School of Design and have held fellowships with Code for America and the Center for Urban Pedagogy.
