Hi! I’m Ari
I’m an action sports pro, podcaster and filmmaker. Foolish as it is, I’m trying to change the world by mindfully growing up and I’m encouraging others to do the same. It seems to be working.

This podcast is my deepest musings about humanity’s future, human potential and my own life. Interviews with philosophers and innovators about the next iteration of human civilization, as well as interviews with world class extreme sports athletes about the higher perspectives they bring back from their sports. Available on all podcast platforms.
My youtube channel is kinda paraglide-centric, but also features philosophy and radical honesty as I bring technical lessons about flying as well as a deep inquiry about the emotional, philosophical and spiritual side of this amazing sport.
A collection of my Adventure Films from around the globe. These have a unique ethos that transcends the sports they feature and highlight a higher level of connection and culture that I’ve been blessed to behold.

Morocco - A Paraglide JourneyI traveled to Morocco with my friend Chris to paraglide and explore. What we found blew our minds, filled our bellies and sparked our imaginations. Enjoy!

Highlining and Kayaking over a HUGE WaterfallI set up my first highline over Sahalie Falls in 2014. Three years later, I went back with a crew of world-class kayakers so that I could stand on the line and watch them kayak over it. It was crazy. In this episode I recount the adventure and make an epic edit of the madness. Enjoy!
Thanks to all the people who made this happen and gave me footage to make this video possible! Devin Tegan and Wes Coughlin especially! Huge ups to the sick paddlers, Knox Hammock and Galen Volckhausen!
