...success, like happiness cannot be pursued; it must ensue... as the unintended side-effect of one's personal dedication to a course greater than oneself." - Mihaliy Csikszentmihaly, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience
Corporate Brand Strategist, Digital Marketing Consultant, Yoga Teacher, Music Producer & That Guy With The Pineapple
Perry's passions are to create, connect, and provide others with the tools to actualize their dreams through leveraging the power of the Internet.
Whether leading a yoga class or rolling out a digital marketing campaign, shared experience, storytelling, community, and authenticity are foundational ideals he emphasizes and continues to inject in all personal and professional endeavors.
This approach has seen him generate $200,000+ in online revenue through social media advertising campaigns, increase in-store sales 1000%+ year-to-year for brick and mortar clients, generate 150+ million collective social media impressions, and turn a social experiment with a pineapple into a viral online following over just the past two years.
As a Graduate Teaching Assistant at The Ohio State University, Perry received back-to-back university teaching awards over consecutive semesters while simultaneously facilitating events in one of the countries top 3-largest athletic departments. He's helped develop events while working in business development with The Walt Disney Company and ESPN Wide World of Sports and played a significant role in transforming an electronic music-focused blog into an international publication reaching 500,000+ unique monthly readers.
When he's not on his laptop, he's likely on his cell phone. When he's not on his cell phone, he can either be found on a yoga mat, creating music, or traveling to music festivals around the world.
