Christopher Perry

Member | CIO

An explorer and a creator from an early age, Christopher Perry wasted no time in becoming a student of science and technology. Hailing from a small town in Mississippi, Christopher became fixated on books about the evolution of space exploration to stimulate his imagination and escape the doldrums of rural living. Throughout his years in primary school, he was known to acquaintences as 'that kid that won a medal at Space Camp' after being featured in a front page article of the local paper for winning the Most Outstanding Camper award at Space Camp Florida in the 4th grade.

Christopher started building computers and creating software as a hobby after receiving his first computer (a Performa 550) as a Christmas present in 1994. Ten years later, his continued fascination with web technologies transplanted him to the sprawling urban landscape of Los Angeles where he became Director of IT for The Groop, a reknown metro area design firm. It was during this period that Christopher decided to leave the IT field to specialize in PHP/Drupal development and he has not looked back.

The next few years would see Christopher climb the engineering ranks while working with a variety of west coast development shops. While building his base of freelance clients, Christopher was also a consultant for Drupal heavyweights Stauffer and Workhabit. These opportunities exponentially elevated Christopher's skills to match the scale of the enterprise-level web applications he was now delivering.

In May 2011, Christopher met Nicholas Alipaz while contracting for Advanstar Communications Inc., a Santa Monica based media conglomorate. At the time both were Senior Developers leading separate teams, but when asked to collaborate on a floundering late/over budget project, the two found that they made quite an effective leadership team. This led to Christopher and Nicholas to join forces and Christopher became Member and CIO of Stitch Technologies.

When not hunched over a grindstone, Christopher can be found in the Hollywood hills playing with his dogs Bowser and Samus, designing/creating analog synthesis devices, or making a fool of himself on the stages of Los Angeles fronting his retro-psych band Frankie Marathon.
