Along with his family, Eric moved to Bucharest, Romania in 2020.

Since May 2021, Eric  has interviewed over 80 entrepreneurs from all over Europe. He is a former social entrepreneur having created a one-of-a-kind kids' fitness program - Fly Movement. He previously served as a Marketing and CX Director for publicly traded companies, has an MBA from Pace University, and was a Houston 40 under 40. He's also an investor in European startups.


Eric brings a very unique perspective because not only does he work at a startup but by being the first American to interview startup founders from all over Europe.
