Ariel Norling

I'm a twenty-something-year-old user experience designer, entrepreneur, and writer.

I'm passionate about crafting great experiences. That's why I'm interested in education, serendipity, minimalism, and design.

I co-founded BetaMatch & YouShouldDate.Me. I attended Syracuse University (Policy Studies '12) and am on a leave of absence from graduate school to work on a startup.

I am an introvert, night owl, minimalist, and feminist. I love reading, hiking, and making things (whether it's putting together IKEA furniture, coding a website, or constructing a craft project). I suffer from wanderlust and insatiable curiosity. I dance with élan, especially to Ke$ha. I am consistently described as spunky, sassy, and/or snarky.
