Hey There! I'm Eric.

I’m a passionate startup founder with expertise in SEO, growth marketing, building online communities, and product development.

I am currently working on www.foundersbeta.com to build the ultimate online hub for tech companies, scale ups, and startups. I believe in the power of entrepreneurship to create opportunities for all. I’m also a top ranked tennis player and like to play chess. I’m always up for a conversation about business, marketing, and tennis.
