Writing

Hi, I’m Ari. I like to write things. I’ve been writing about running (and more) since 2017 on my blog My Body Is A Machine. I’m also working on a new food blog, a fun project that’s kept me occupied through the current pandemic.
I was a Maude team writer at UCB Theatre from 2008 to 2014. I went on to direct Maude and other sketch shows. In 2017 I wrote and directed The Kellyanne Show at UCBT, a musical sketch show about the life of Kellyanne Conway starring Ann Carr, Cody Lindquist, Tessa Hersh, Jay Malsky, and Jason Selvig.
I composed the music and played piano for The Kirk Cameron Reperatory Players Present: A Harry Potter Musical! performed at UCB Theatre. Book and lyrics by Achilles Stamatelaky, directed by Ryan Karels, and starring Rachel Bloom, Michael Kayne, Natasha Rothwell, and more very fine performers from UCB.
I was a writer for AMC’s Story Notes, and later a writer in the development department, for Sharp Entertainment, a NYC production company specializing in unscripted television.
Here are a few other things I’ve written:
A December to Remember (filmed sketch)
I’ve also been a joke writer on twitter since what feels like 1972. Here are lists some of my tweets have appeared on in case you happen to have a lot of time on your hands.
