A Bit About Me

I am a natural leader, communicator, and creative visionary, with tenure in several vertical industries. I’m the creator of Eventrio (acquired 2019), the sponsorship & event marketplace, working with C-levels of such notable clients as the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, National Association of Broadcasters, and DXC.Technology. I’ve also worked with major government and Fortune 500 companies such as GE Healthcare, Boeing, & the NSA. I founded 7pt5 Design, to help other entrepreneurs turn complex ideas into beautifully concise graphics & technologies.


I’m an “A player” that thrives on complex challenges and works well with others. As a constant student implementing a systems-thinking approach, I’ve driven growth and profitability with more than a dozen companies encompassing several industries. I’ve collaboratively lead global teams, have executed countless marketing & sales campaigns, and have an inherent strength in strategy, productization, branding, content creation, metrics and project management.


My empathetic approach helps me accurately gather and communicate user requirements and act as a perfect liaison between the technical teams and end users.

Please reach out if you'd like to partner on your next big thing.

Rob Miller

founder of Avectra

Eric is an A player who works tirelessly...he is a skilled strategist and a natural at marketing, sales and product development. I’d partner with him again given the chance as he will always carry more than his weight.

Naif Ahmed

founder of Bridgeplex

Eric is exactly the kind of person I love working with: a wearer of many hats that gets things done. He has a knack for assessing the raw, underlying factors behind what drives success, and pairing that strategic thinking with blunt force work ethic. He is meticulous in assessing what needs to get done, what the risks are, what resources are required, what the people involved may perceive, and putting that all together in way that comes together beautifully.

Andrew Naudin
