Ari can’t get through a door or use a faucet without commenting on its flawed design; a gift and a curse. He’s a dreamer and problem solver at heart. Maybe it’s his career spanning gaming, finance and tech, or his engineering background, but one look into the creator economy has become a decade-long obsession to rewrite the rules to place the creator at the center, where they belong.
His company, Maestro, has been quietly powering the world’s biggest names including Apple, Billie Eilish, Epic Games, and Pandora. Now, Maestro’s making those same tools available to creators of all sizes and experience levels.
Prior to Maestro, Ari was a Product Lead at Zynga where he designed features, managed revenue, and integrated brands into CityVille, the biggest game on Facebook at the time. Prior to this, Ari was an analyst at Goldman Sachs where he helped traders optimize their use of data to maximize the financial outcomes of their trades. Ari holds degrees from both Stanford and Cornell, an M.S. in Management Science and B.S. in Information Science, respectively.
