Arya Zarrinkelk

Arya Zarrinkelk is the Steve Kerr of career counseling. Never officially being a career counselor before his previous tenure at Bay Area Video Coalition, Arya has helped over 300 clients ranging from ages seventeen to seventy find employment and higher education opportunities. Arya balances a warm and fun approach to career counseling with a strict level of accountability. Arya won’t let his clients fail. His mantra is “lent now, mardi gras later.” He attributes his success to his colleagues at BAVC Media, playing bass, and his innate ability to grow amazing beards.

“Every morning I wake up and sing my mantra like the blues, I cannot lose. Time to get up and move.” – Quelle Chris
