I’m so glad you’re here. I am a former media executive turned entrepreneur, speaker, author and executive coach focusing on transformation and personal development. I am passionate about conscious living, high-level wellness, spiritual growth and helping people with all types of life changes. My expertise is in life skills for adults, youth and companies.

I advise companies and coach executives who are ready to look differently at their life! And I am very committed to helping raise happy, healthy, conscious and empowered kids, through my talks, workshops, books and coaching for parents.

Ever since I was young, I have wanted to make a difference . . . somehow.

I live in New York City with my husband and son.

I am the founder of several websites, all dedicated to change and transformation. is the hub, where I share insights and interviews and where my products and books can be found. (I named it arianestudio as no one has to try to spell my full name!) I have done dozens of TV and radio shows, including The Today Show, the CBS Early Show, Fox and Friends, CNN Radio and ABC. I have written articles for Oprah Magazine, Town & Country, the New York Daily News, Reader’s Digest, Women’s Health and Beliefnet, among others. I’ve been grateful to be featured on over 100 media outlets.

I frequently speak and work around the country and abroad on issues of change and transformation.

I recently launched a new app,, with a mission to integrate amazing transformational content into bite size daily practices, all found in your pocket on your phone.

I am also finishing two books, A Foot in Both Worlds, on how to bridge the material, crazy world we all live in with the spiritual path. This particular theme is one that is very close to my heart, and The Spiritual Mom’s Handbook, a guide for moms to see the whole journey of motherhood more consciously.

My most important roles are to be a spiritual traveler, a partner to an amazing man whom I love deeply, a daughter, sister, friend and to have great love for all my fellow beings on this Path. I am passionate about spontaneous travel, healthy food, animals, books, music, inspiring movies, retreats, Bikram yoga, silent time, skiing, the ocean and the magnificence of life.

I’ve had several lives it feels. I’ve been an athlete. I’ve been a management consultant. I’ve worked in the music business, in the internet world. I’ve been a venture capitalist. I’ve worked for a non-profit. I’ve worked on TV, and I’ve also taken a long sabbatical to figure things out! I’ve worked in Europe, Africa, Asia and the US.

It seems like I’ve taken every workshop and seminar possible, read all the books that had some element of truth, wisdom or higher-learning in them since the age of 16. I was (and still am) obsessed with finding real knowledge, why I am here, answering the bigger questions in life, how I can make a difference. I am eternally grateful to all the many teachers of Truth that I have had.

After I got a bit lost in the big corporate world and went traveling for a few years to get my soul back, I started my first business,, a media company focused on guiding people through all types of changes, both personal and professional. The company, launched its website in 2008, and currently features 60 life-change topics. Please take a moment to check it out.

I started an online show called ChangeNation (, where I interviewed the world’s experts and change agents to inspire and inform anyone going through specific changes. You can also find it on iTunes. I have also interviewed Nobel Prize winners, which were wonderful moments for me.

I am the author of a book entitled, The First 30 Days: Your Guide to Making Any Change Easier , published by Harper Collins in May 2008. It has been translated into several languages and reached the bestseller lists on both Amazon and Barnes&Noble.

I have a degree in Economics and International Relations from the London School of Economics, and began my professional career at The Boston Consulting Group and worked in over a dozen countries. After earning an MBA from Stanford University, I moved to New York, and worked with media companies Bertelsmann and Sony. In 2000, I joined Time/Warner as the Managing Director of a new $500 million digital-media venture fund. Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, and a stint working with the very talented Charlie Rose, I spent a year as a Senior Advisor on a Humanitarian Project, A Day in the Life of Africa. The project involved the top 100 photojournalists placed in the 53 countries of Africa on a single day.

I’ve spoken at events including The Oprah conference, Maria Shriver’s Women’s Conference, the Texas and Boston Women’s Conferences, the Health Conference in NYC, keynoted several company functions from the World Bank, Google, Amazon, Twitter, Nestle, the Girls Guides, to speaking at High Schools and Graduations and also international conferences. I have attended the wonderful TED conference for over 20 years.

I was a competitive swimmer and a runner in a series of marathons and triathlons. I reached the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro (barely) and accompanied a group of students to Antarctica, the most amazing place on Earth. I was recently in a documentary movie called The Highest Pass; a spiritual motorcycle journey through the Himalayas and the highest roads in the world. This is probably the craziest thing I’ve ever done in my life!

I grew up in six countries and so far have visited over 70 more. Truthfully I am obsessed with traveling! I will go anywhere at anytime for the adventure of being alive, of learning and of meeting people. Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, Burma, Brazil, Kenya, The North Pole and The Galapagos are most definitely on the list of what’s still to come.

Kind wishes,
