Born and raised in Texas to a Peruvian father and an Irish-American mother, Arianna discovered a passion for performing at a young age. She credits her mother with allowing her to explore these interests fully, which led to her training as an actor at the California Institute of the Arts. 

Since then, she's had a dynamic career as a performer that includes work in professional theater, television, film and radio. 

Her long time interest in filmmaking started as a teenager, when she made her first short film. She has since produced and/or directed multiple short films and music videos. She continues to develop projects for film, tv and stage. You will find her work ranges from off beat comedy to dramatic projects that focus on gender parity in story telling.
