Hello, I’m Christian Perez
Art Director. Entrepreneur. Traveler.
I created this blog in 2013 when I first moved to New York City. It started out as a way for me to document my experiences. I had just gotten married, was 21 years old, and decided to take my career as a web designer to the next level. My journey begun in the sunshine state of Florida, but wanting to grow more in my field, I took my talents to the city that never sleeps.
I kept up with this blog for six months, posting a new article every Sunday. The consistency of my writings allowed me to connect with over 3000 people a month. At the time, I was consulting with start ups and entrepreneurs one on one, but what I liked about this blog is that it allowed me to help thousands of more people at the same time.
At the height of this blog’s popularity, I used is as a platform to launch my biggest project, The Name App. It’s an app that helps people find available names for their brand. With the help of my platform, the name app was picked up and featured on The Next Web, Product Hunt, and even Forbes. More than 200,000 people have used the app since it was launched.
Seeing the value of building my platform gave me the idea to create something for all others to use with their brands. My platform played a key role in my success and I knew that it could help others succeed as well. This led me to my current venture, Branded Humans, a digital platform for entrepreneurs to connect with their audience.
This has now become my full time pursuit. I moved back home and created the HQ of Branded Humans in an old music recording studio right in the heart of Central Florida. I’ve put together a small team of my friends, and we are actively working to build up this startup.
What started out as a personal blog project, has now turned into the basis of a platform for any entrepreneur to connect with their followers.
