Ariel’s professional mission is to manifest creative ideas into user experiences that can better enable a balance between the human and the natural world. This passion has allowed him to be highly effective in a breadth of roles across industries, ranging from architecture and planning to renewable energy, with roles in design, manufacturing, product development and management. As Ariel grew up at the Center, its “commotion” has influenced his professional trajectory. He has worked with companies such as the U.S. Green Building Council, the Clinton Climate Initiative, and ARUP on a range of sustainable initiatives. For the past eight years, he has worked in a leadership role with ALL Power Labs, specializing in bringing carbon-negative biomass energy products to market. Ariel has been on the board of the Center since 2017.
