Ashly Perez      

Internet Star; Former Video Producer at BuzzFeed Motion Pictures

Ashly Perez is an internet video star and a former Video Producer and Development Partner for BuzzFeed Motion Pictures. She joined BuzzFeed in 2013 as an editorial fellow for the website. As a staff writer, she started BuzzFeed Travel and is responsible for two of BuzzFeed’s most viral early quizzes “What City Should You Actually Live In?” and “What Career Should You Actually Have?” In 2014, she moved to Los Angeles and joined BuzzFeed Motion Pictures.

She is one of the co-creators behind BuzzFeed Violet, BuzzFeed’s first character universe. Perez and her fellow producers/Violet characters released "You Do You" Season 1 in December 2015 and it was an immediate hit, garnering the top spot in the iTunes TV store for the entire week of launch and beating out "The Walking Dead" and "Keeping Up with the Kardashians". Variety called "You Do You" Season 2 a “comedy hit.”

Perez is currently working on projects for both digital and traditional fields, focusing on representation of queer women and women of color. She is currently a writer for "Good Trouble," a spin-off of "The Fosters" where two friends move to Los Angeles together.
