About

 

Relocated fall of 2016 from Chicago to Seattle for my MBA and just trying to figure out my life like everyone else. On this blog you’ll find Seattle and Chicago-centric restaurant, music, and book ramblings, along with tangents, activities, and hopefully something thought provoking.


 

Who is Arty the Alien? : Arty, became my Instagram alter ego after an incident with a man calling me ‘Arty’ when I worked at Urban Outfitters for a time, and it became a nickname. I love alliterations and sci-fi, thus Arty the Alien was born. My real name is Ari, unless you’re talking to my mother in which case it’s Ariella.
