Hello, I’m Chris Perez.
I’m a product manager, digital strategist, marketing consultant, and technologist in Austin, TX.
Sr. Director of Digital Experience, Ascend Marketing
I help organizations leverage their investments in technology to communicate through design and experience. I grew up with an appreciation for art and design, and have a Bachelor’s Degree in Physics and Mathematics from Austin College, a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan, and nine years experience as an electrical engineer at IBM.
The second stage of my career started when I independently launched Austin’s first digital magazine, Citygram Austin. And later had my own agency, Left Right Media, that served small and medium-sized businesses.
I am extremely passionate about the marketing and product development, and regularly contribute writing work to several outlets across design and technology. Feel free to reach out if you want to talk about any projects or initiatives you are currently exploring.
Some great brands I’ve worked with.

I’ve built websites, apps, experiential events, and businesses with these talented group of designers, developers, content marketers, and project managers. I’m happy to connect you with anyone you may be looking to meet, or work with, for your next project or career opportunity.
