Kerry Perdue is a multidisciplinary artist, educator, and entrepreneur who advocates expression through the arts. After graduating from the University of Southern California with both a Bachelor's Degree and a Master's Degree, Kerry went on to work in various aspects of the creative industry. Among some of her projects, Kerry wrote and produced marketing campaigns for Fortune 100 companies, coordinated scripts for Black Entertainment Television, and costumed for Academy Award-nominated Director Roland Joffe (The Killing Fields) and Costume Designer Jennifer Marlin (The Goldbergs). Kerry also enjoyed teaching English, Drama/Film, Rhetoric/Argumentation, or Literature courses at The University of Texas at Dallas, Saddleback College, McCoy Rigby Entertainment, Tarrant County College, and Pasadena City College. A member of SAG/AFTRA and AEA, Kerry loved working on various stage, television, and film productions as either cast or crew. Kerry's appreciation for the arts comes from an artistic family - her grandparents were touring musicians, and her grandfather Robert H. Hildebrand’s photographs were recently the focus of a six-month solo exhibition and lecture series at the William McKinley Presidential Library and Museum. Her grandmother, Jane Cullum, was a saxophonist for the Ina Ray Hutton and Her Melodears band and others. A note of trivia, another member of Kerry's extended family, Dick Glasser, wrote or produced songs or albums for Andy Williams, Johnny Cash, Dean Martin, Hank Williams Jr., Vikki Carr, and The Everly Brothers.
Kerry is a native Californian and currently lives in Northern California. Her hobbies are writing short stories (working on a contemporary Gothic-influenced collection), eyeing vintage clothes, and spending time with her rescued pomeranian, Midge ("Motormouth Midge") from recycledpoms.org.
