What's in a name? When I was young, I would say "my name is Erik", because my parents told me I had a label. Nowadays, I say "I am Erik", because what I do accumulates into who I am.
I make handcrafted software. In 10 years, I've written code from Web to Mobile, .Net to iOS, and I've always focused on perpetual learning. I strive to be user-centered in my work, active in my community, and big in my dreams. I use this site to share some of my perspectives and work and you can use it to contact me.
I work at LiveTiles, leading the team building the core product in Microsoft web technology, based out of Tri-Cities, WA.
I spent some time teaching kids to code using the Unity game engine. I have put all of the 5-day "Game Camp" materials on this site.
