Christopher Brya | Co-author, WTF Are Men Thinking?, CEO/Founder, Solavista Media, LLC
I am the co-author of the WTFAMT book which by the way, wasn’t something that Miguel or I intended on doing, but we know an opportunity when we see one. I’ve spent over 15 years building brands, assimilating and leveraging technology to help improve people’s lives. What I really enjoy is spotting a trend or niche that is not being served and then creating a brand, product or service to fill that demand.
My background was forged in working over the past 20 years in marketing research, mobile strategy, search engine optimization and user experience research for some of the biggest brands known like Revlon, Motorola and Choice Hotels International.
I live in Phoenix with my wife and two toddlers. I try to run, bike and swim when the heat allows me. I’m also one of those guys that buy wine based solely on the design of the label. Sure, you oenophiles can laugh…but I know I’m not the only one who does that!
Miguel Almaraz | Co-author, WTF Are Men Thinking?, Chief Researcher, Solavista Media, LLC
Hello. I’m Miguel. I am market researcher/user experience professional who unbelievably became “co-author” of the WTFAMT book! Who knew market research would lead to this? My career has been spent trying to help companies separate BS from reality. I especially love the concept of using online research and data accumulation in order to tell great stories.
Prior to creating fantastic books on the male-female dynamic and managing research projects for Solavista Media, I was tucked away at companies like Motorola, Pearson and Thomson NetG. I live in Phoenix and have been married to my wife for 22 years. I have two children. I have a full head of black hair (which I enjoy giving Chris crap about), will play poker with almost anyone at any time and I’ve never lost a sock in the dryer. Not ever.
