about eric

I suppose a website that is named after one's self is meant to be somewhat pretentious..

I was born in Albuquerque, NM and moved to Louisville, KY. Despite all odds, I've managed to live a somewhat interesting life---I suppose. I've spent most of my life training in one Martial Art or another. I've been illustrating since the age of 3. I've published several books on ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), patterns, and symbolism. I've published several coloring books. I also publish under a pseudonym. I love music, movies, science fiction, classic horror, goth, and Halloween. Lastly, I've managed to climb my way up the education/corporate ladder and am currently working on a PhD in Information Technology, which also happens to be my profession, specializing in Cyber Security and Data Analytics. Lastly---and most recent---I am a musician specializing in ambient (drone) music.
