Education Consultant

About Eric

He believes education as a profession is not only a calling but a source of guidance and inspiration towards building thriving relationships and communities, in all measures.

As an avid writer, filmmaker and strategic education consultant, Eric’s energy is infectious and ever present. With experience working in media, edtech, sales, and as a former classroom teacher and administrator, he brings a divergent background and thought process to the fore.

He has taught and lead in the US for both public charters and suburban districts, worked as an account executive and market development lead for a student information system and worked globally as a writer and consultant for schools, edtech companies, and policymakers.

Eric has a coach’s disposition, whether designing and leading professional learning, writing policy guidance, or directing a short film, nurturing the best out of those he collaborates with, regardless of outcome.

He serves on a number of advisory boards and continues to keep up with former students around the world.
