Pets:Nalu, my Labradoodle

A talented full-stack web developer with 25+ years of experience, Eric joined the TG team in the summer of 2016 and we couldn’t be more excited to have him. Eric is a jack of all trades in the marketing industry, comfortable cranking out custom code as well as impressive graphic design. In short, Eric is a pro at bringing quality designs to life on the web.

Prior to arriving at our doorstep, Eric lent his services to a variety of agencies and non-profits throughout Illinois, Arizona, California, and North Carolina, most notably Indo Jax Surf Charities, which provides free surf camps for special needs, medically fragile, and disadvantaged children. As a father of three, this project hit close to home, ultimately helping his autistic daughter find her true passion in the waves.

Eric holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography & Design from Arizona State University, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Spanish minor. He also speaks a little Swedish, which he uses to craft love notes to his native-born wife of nearly 20 years. When he’s not creating interactive software, solving data problems, or producing AutismPSA videos, Eric enjoys quoting The Princess Bride and rolling around on his favorite office accessory – the chair mat. For him, nothing is more annoying than wheels stuck in the carpet, and we certainly agree!
