The Liaison Studio

Extend your creative team’s bandwidth.


Built to serve our enterprise clients’ creative marketing needs, the Liaison Studio has become a one-stop shop for overflow project work, big or small. Think of it as your red phone: just pick it up and Liaison will come to the rescue.

Our core team of experienced marcom project managers is available on a moment’s notice to step into the breach, triage the project and determine who and what is needed to get the job done on time and on budget.

Leveraging our extensive network of freelance creative professionals – designers, copywriters, photographers, video editors, event planners and many more – Liaison pulls together the optimal team to produce exactly what you need.

Here’s how:

  • We spec and estimate every project up front so you know your costs before we start the work.
  • Our project managers work closely with your team to gather content, oversee the production process, secure brand, content and legal approval, and coordinate final delivery.
  • We collaborate with your creatives and stakeholders to find the optimal concept.
  • We adopt and conform to your company’s processes and procedures, working with your existing traffic tools and processes as a seamless extension to your team.
  • All this at a cost substantially lower than a traditional advertising or marketing agency.

Don’t let a last-minute project or unplanned marketing initiative stress your internal creative marketing team beyond its limits. Let Liaison handle that project for you.

We feel the need…the need for speed.

“They were like an extension of our team and the end result was better than we could have done by ourselves.”

Chris Lopez



Over 20 years ago, Christine started her communications career as a production coordinator in a small Miami advertising agency. She worked her way up through the production and traffic management ranks to manage studio departments large and small from Miami to Denver to New York City, finally landing in Austin in 2011.

Christine has held leadership roles at many agencies including Draft, Hill Holiday and Enviromedia and on in-house creative teams at Armani Exchange, Starz Encore Networks and Sun Microsystems. She combines her hands-on project management skills with big-picture people- and budget- management skills to help her clients and her teams succeed. She has helped produce award-winning work ranging from digital and print to video and experiential – tackling everything from one-off collateral projects to global integrated marketing campaigns.

When not breaking up fights between her two young boys, Christine enjoys reading history books, binge watching dark comedies, pilates-ing, whipping up dinner parties, and exploring Austin's many fabulous dive bars with her husband. She also blogs about personal productivity and organization at and

Amber Ross



Amber has taught Liaison HQ that the combination of a major in finance and minor in radio-television-film is a stellar formula for a project manager. After completing her program at The University of Texas at Austin, Amber’s work supported commercial banking and television companies before landing at Liaison.

Amber’s first experience as a Liaisonian was as a grip on a one-day video shoot. She became a more permanent member of the Liaison landscape by joining a client’s Managed Services team as the video coordinator. Three years later, she joined HQ as a project manager in The Studio. Working in just about every role at Liaison, Amber possesses great insight into the workings of the company as well as client needs and winning strategies.


Amber is no stranger to adventure! One month after their wedding, she and her husband packed their lives into a travel trailer to see the continental United States in nine months. This California-native now resides in Austin with her husband (a fellow Liaisonian!), two boys and one sweet silver lab rescue pup.

Leslie Shulman



Leslie joined the Liaison family in 2015 as a marketing project manager for one of Liaison’s Fortune 50 clients, where she managed several Thought Leadership programs. Keeping it in the family, she now feels right at home in the friendly, fast-paced atmosphere of the Liaison Studio.

As a New Jersey native, she began her professional career in NYC working in public relations and marketing for Swarovski and Tiffany & Co. From there she joined the marketing team at The Pierre Hotel and then once in Austin, she dabbled in real estate marketing. It was during her time in NYC that she adopted the “make it happen” attitude and strong work ethic that serves her well in her current role at Liaison. She’s a people person in the truest sense and someone who knows how to work hard while keeping things fun.


Her search for sunshine and a lively city brought her to Austin in 2015. In her free time she stays active doing yoga and she’ll try almost any workout class once. She loves salsa dancing, and her most secret and underutilized talent is the fine art of hula hooping. Leslie chills out by cooking, visiting wineries, and spending time with her friends, family and of course her beloved animals: her two-year-old, adventurous “forever kitten” Pepper, and her 11-year-old pug/boston mix, Delores.
