Along with her partner, Miles Bianchi, Ari designs jewelry for the avant garde, modern, urbanite. Using their backgrounds in architecture, Ari and Miles create unique forms to push the bounds of digital fabrication's capacities.

Ari crafts unique plant-based perfumes and apothecary products by hand. As a self-taught perfumer, Ari uses her experience growing up in Hawaii to inspire her blends. After frustrating experiences trying to detoxify her skin care with no success, Ari decided to do it herself. Her apothecary line, V by Viscera is sold at Viscera and a number of independent boutiques on the West Coast.
