What they say…

Hi, I'm Eric 👋

Writer, researcher, educator, and persistent ponderer. I’ve lived and worked on three contents, and backpacked through a few dozen countries—teaching, studying, writing, and managing teams.

Professionally, I have a PhD in cognitive psychology, with peer-reviewed research on reasoning, decision making, and mathematical cognition. I’ve also helped launch a successful startup blog, created award-winning content, and grown and managed a team of content and copywriters through three rounds of investor funding.

More personally, I’m a dad, husband, son, and creator of Looking out Loud, where I explore how to best use my time now as a developing dad and limited-life human, while laying the foundations for a future I hope to see. I also make time away from the screens to create with any physical mediums I can get my hands on.
