"Before the blog, I was getting so many questions from other DIY musicians on how to get their bands off the ground and I tried to reply to everyone. It got to a point where I just didn't have time to respond to everyone anymore, so I started Ari's Take and just started pointing people there," he explains.

He's had countless songs placed on TV shows and charted in the top ten on iTunes - all as a DIY musician. As an actor, he has co-starred in TV shows like 2 Broke Girls, The Fosters, Sam & Cat and Touch.
