Arianas attended Langston University. Prior to EDC, he worked bridging the digital divide among minorities and seniors at Access to Software for All People, and before that as a summer camp leader with Berkeley Youth Alternatives. Arianas feels that being involved in social justice work just feels good and that housing justice is especially important because it ensures that folks do not get taken advantage of. He feels that the work EDC does helps lots of people facing rent or eviction problems. He is semi-fluent in Spanish.
