About Eric

Greetings! My name is Eric, obviously. Welcome to my site. I am from the United States. 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 survived a few health-threatening situations (that include a heart attack in 2003). I was also born with the blessing-curse of Autism Spectrum Disorder (High Functioning). I've published several books on ASD. I've published several coloring books. I've also published analytical books regarding patterns, root-cause analysis, vocal analysis, and symbolism. I host two YOUTUBE channels dedicated to Martial Arts and all other things analytics and art/vocals/music-related. Lastly, I host a page dedicated to COVID-19 analysis and statistics with special emphasis on Throughput Models and Forecasting Models that I'm writing my dissertation on.
