I'm an engineer & team lead who loves people & stories.
As CTO, built the world's first crowdfunding platform for politics and raised millions of dollars for grassroots candidates
Led a team that built one of the earliest versions of the TOMS Shoes website, kickstarting the one-for-one, business-for-a-cause movement
Spoke on a Harvard University panel about the future of Government and Technology
Consulted with the U.S. Government about User Experience and Information Architecture on websites for the U.S. Coast Guard
Taught middle schoolers in low-income neighborhoods how to build their first web page, and lectured on Frameworks in Software Engineering at California State University, Long Beach
Co-founded a startup that pioneered a new form of inline content management, transforming the online experience for hundreds of small businesses
Here are the story-telling tools I've used:
JS · PHP · HTML · CSS · MySQL · AWS · CMS · BS* in CS
In fact, some people have even told nice stories about me:
I trusted Eric with the daunting task of launching a brand new TOMS Shoes e-commerce site. Not only was Eric a web developer on that endeavor, but he also worked co-lead on the project as a manager, working hard and long hours to get the job done. His dedication to his team and the TOMS mission was tremendous.
He's been a joy to work with in and outside of his department. I truly wish him the best of luck in all future projects.
