Arielle Strauss Brueland was born on December 26th, 1990. She is an actress, author, and percussionist originally from Freehold, New Jersey, now living in San Diego, California with her wife and two kitties.
Like many actors, Arielle started when she was very young. She did commercials when she was just shy of eight years old. She then went on to train at Second City in Chicago at the age of twelve. Eventually she wound up at Sarah Lawrence College, where her studies in theatre continued. She also studied the Spanish language and fiction writing. This is where her first three novels were written, and they're being republished into beautiful second editions by AUSXIP Publishing on Halloween 2020.
Arielle has performed on Off-Off Broadway and at the New York Fringe Festival. Her favorite job was traveling with Momentum Theatre Troupe around New England, performing Shakespeare on a truck that opened to a stage. Since that dream came true, Arielle has begun to take an interest in Audio Theatre. She currently works as a voice actress with San Diego-based company Sherri's Playhouse. She's also hard at work collaborating with AUSXIP Audio and the XVPodcasters to bring the character of Zoe Lambros to life in a series of audiobooks by Mary D. Brooks. Arielle loves being part of a creative team whose goal is to bring stories to life. When she's not acting or writing, Arielle can be seen touring on the bongos with Jersey-based rock/pop musicians Don Lee and The Wag. Arielle is a petite woman with an enormous passion for life and a love of storytelling in its many forms. She hopes that by telling the right stories, she can be an agent for positive change in the world.
