Being playful is very serious business.

About Ariana

My day job is as a behavioral and social scientist, putting my Master of Public Health degree to good use. I also have a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Theater and am always looking for fun ways to combine my dorky research side with my playful creative side.

When I’m not talking or writing about sex and sexuality, you can find me watching the Warriors… or you may find me on the dance floor challenging someone to a worm-off.
