About Mr. Perez

Mr. Perez was born in Gallup, New Mexico and moved to St. George, Utah where he became the first in his family to graduate from college. While studying communications, Mr. Perez fell into the world of film and television production, a dream he didn’t think he could do as making movies seemed so distant. That first reality television job turned into 8 years of working freelance in the industry where he worked in many different departments, but his favorite is Grip and Gaffing. 

During this time, Mr. Perez took a break from the hustle of the film industry and went into social services. Here he found another love working in social work by working in homeless services and being an advocate and voice for many vulnerable people and groups. 

Now Mr. Perez is here teaching his first love, film production, and wants to pass his knowledge of the industry on to the future artists, creators, and filmmakers of ALA.
