Hi, I’m Eric

I started programming small android applications during high school in 2013. I was greatly intrigued by coding and decided to pursue dual degrees in computer science and applied mathematics. While I was a student, I enjoyed implementing the numerical algorithms I learned in my mathematics courses using the knowledge I had gained in my computer science courses.

In 2018, I started working as a web developer specializing in front-end and the WordPress content management system. At the beginning of 2020, I soon realized that my true passion and calling was data engineering. I strongly believe that organizations big and small can tremendously benefit from a modern data infrastructure. I currently work for Bibles for America as a Data Engineer.

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Applied Mathematical Sciences from the University of Connecticut. While studying computer science and applied math, I became well versed in the fundamentals behind programming, computation, and problem-solving. This extensive background has served me well working in the fields of web development and data engineering.

While in university, I was a member of the men’s rowing team and broke the school’s 2000 meter indoor record during my senior year. Recently, I qualified for the Men’s single event for the 2020/2021 USRowing Olympic Trials in Sarasota, FL which will be held as soon as the Covid-19 pandemic has been resolved. I am currently training full time at Newport Sea Base in Newport Beach, CA to make the US National Rowing Team.

During my summers in high school and university, I was a camp counselor and lead kayaking instructor for Camp Eagle Wing. I was promoted to senior staff and event coordinator during my final summer. I picked up strong communication and leadership skills from my 7 years as a camp counselor. Many people talk about the tech shortage; however, I believe that there is also a shortage of empathy / EQ-based communication and leadership. I believe that my combination of hard and soft skills fills both of these shortages.
