It was after he went to high school that he started his own computer company. However, he had a passion for language, which is why he joined Harvard where he studied English and Literature. When he was a student at the university, he served both as the editor and columnist to the Harvard Crimson.

His passion for literature and the arts did not dissuade him from pursuing his first love, computer programming. This is why he combined his classes with studies at the MIT. He graduated in 1988 with honors. He did a few jobs before he decided to move to California and set up his own company. He hoped that he could use technology to resolve the problems that are common in education, health care provision and other services. Three years later, he started the Digital evolution, an interactive agency. One of his great achievements was the StarBright community that he created where terminally ill kids can meet and share their experiences.

He was noticed as a rising star two decades ago. He was part of the 1997 Al Gore forum on health care and technology. He advised the then vice president on the matters that related to technology’s role in the healthcare industry. Eric has also taken part in the Clinton global initiative.

His training in Harvard hasn’t gone to waste either as he has written quite a number of books. This includes Understanding Enterprise SOA. The book focuses on the creation of architecture that is oriented towards excellence in service delivery. His achievements so far are an indication that he will be a force to reckon with in the coming years.
