Eric is a Senior Full-Stack engineer on 645 Ventures’ engineering team. In his role he works with the engineering team to develop the firm’s internal software tools used to drive the firm’s investing strategy.
Eric was born in California, raised in Las Vegas and now lives in Salt Lake, Utah where he has worked as a software engineer for more than a decade. Over his career he has developed a great appreciation for entrepreneurs and startup culture as he has worked for startups in the “Silicon Slopes.” Eric received a B.S. in Accounting from Brigham Young University, but his time working in a fast-paced startup provided the opportunity to explore his passion for building software systems that keep the world moving. Since then he has been privileged to learn from many talented software engineers that are passionate about following best practices and creating quality software.
He regularly disconnects from the online world by camping with family in the nearby Uinta mountain range where mobile phone reception is nearly non-existent. Occasionally he also escapes to farther away places like Yellowstone as part of a consistent habit of spending time in nature with family, although he also makes room for an annual road trip to Disneyland.
