Ariel has always felt an unavoidable pull to be a part of something greater than themself. They chased that feeling by joining the military almost fresh out of high school and there, they were able to experience life in ways that their small, conservative hometown couldn't afford them. After bringing Ariel and their wife to Warner Robins, Ariel separated from the Air Force after 6 years of service. They found work in a few local service industry jobs before settling into their current role as a Manufacturing Analyst at Northrop Grumman. Today, Ariel is also a disabled veteran, small business owner, and student working toward a bachelor's degree in Philosophy.
Ariel feels that "if you want it done right, you have to do it yourself," and it's one of the main beliefs that pushed them to run for Georgia House District 147. Ariel knows that everything they have done in their life had been preparing them for this opportunity to be a strong and loyal voice for their district. Ariel is very new to the political world and has little interest in being a politician. However, they are very proud to have the chance at public service and believe that their lack of experience is more than made up for by their passion and drive. Ariel truly believes that when given the proper support, people will amaze you with the things that they can do, and Ariel supports issues that provide support, especially to our most vulnerable communities.
