Over the course of her career, she has worked with independent artists, nonprofit organizations, and large media corporations to develop and produce brand-aligned, mission-centered, digital and video content that achieves marketing, creative, and social impact goals. 

In tandem with her work as a producer and media arts educator, she has long supported the development of creative professionals through field service. As a board member of Emerging Leaders New York Arts (ELNYA) she served on the strategic planning and framing committee and helped the organization to produce a series of professional development events and resources. In 2012, she was elected by her peers to serve on Americans for the Arts (AFTA) Emerging Leaders Advisory Council and assisted in developing programs and resources to promote the growth, development, and sustenance of emerging arts professionals nationwide. Her commitment to advancing the field carries through in her work at Carnegie Hall, where she recently served as member of the planning committee for the fourth International Teaching Artist Conference in New York City.

Aryana joined QCA's Junior Board because of her commitment to leveraging her skills and knowledge for field service and community. She hopes to see the work QCA achieves in supporting art and artists in one of America’s most diverse communities be an example to our nation and its cultural producers of harmony in community and opportunity in intercultural exchange.
