Ariana grew up in a musical family. Her mom is a classical and rock violinist and her dad a film composer and arranger/orchestrator. She listened to a wide range of music (classical and rock from her mom's collection and funk and jazz from her dad's collection). She has diverse tastes in music because of being introduced to so many genres. She has an innate ability to hear and immediately grasp and memorize music. She grew up learning the flute and piano as well as taking voice lessons and that propelled her into the world of professional music as a singer.

She has performed in both operas and regional Broadway shows. Some of her credits include - Tosca and La Boheme with Virginia Opera, she played Brigitta in the Sound of Music and was also in the cast of Annie and Oliver in VMT's presentations of those shows along with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. She was also in Children of Eden with VMT. She sang in The King & I for both Ash Lawn Opera and Lyric Opera.

Ariana is also a sought after voice-over talent. She has done hundreds of both regional and national voice-overs including an international commercial for Hasbro.

In her spare time she really likes crocheting little creatures or scarves, reading Roald Dahl books, or putting together Lego sets.

Who are some of your musical influences:
"Some of my musical influences are Cyndi Lauper for her quirkiness and iconic music, and Laufey for her jazz singing and relatable lyrics for young people.

Tell us about "Windborne Music's" shows and how they impact you:
"Every single person on stage is a professional in what they do, and they treat each other as such. We all take our job seriously, but we have such a great time with it. We’re all here to have fun, both on stage and in the audience, and that’s the best thing that Windborne Music gives me. Every show I’m on I know I’m going to have a good time."

What's on your IPod?:
"A lot of the music I listen to would be considered “classics,” like 50’s music such as Frank Sinatra all the way up to 80’s music like Queen (although I do enjoy more recent music from time to time)."
