He has also created software for investment banking, asset management, trading and compliance groups.

But Eric's financial services background extends beyond projects at global investment banks. He has also done extensive work for regional commercial banks, insurance companies, rating agencies and small financial boutiques. Eric has also held full-time technology positions at a public finance investment bank, a financial services training company, and at the Federal Reserve Bank of NY.

Outside of financial services, Eric has successfully completed numerous custom software projects for clients in a wide variety of industries including: large pharmaceutical and telecommunications institutions; law, architecture, consulting, and accounting partnerships; high-end retailers, consumer products conglomerates and the U.S.'s largest ship-holding company.

Eric has been at the forefront of Office development for 18 years, delivering scores of high-impact, high-productivity, innovative applications on this platform.

Eric is often called in by Microsoft as the go-to expert on Office development projects at some of their best clients. He has presented at technology conferences and events including Microsoft Tech Ed, Developer Days, and several Office product launch events.

Many applications integrate with industry leading real-time price feeds, back-end corporate databases, Document/Content Management and CRM systems.

He is facile with Visual Studio and SQL Server, has experience with database design and management, writing stored procedures, creating and consuming web services, Java integration, several scripting languages, and application deployment tools.
