A results-driven Google Certified AdWords Professional, Eric has engaged in Adwords and Google Grants Management for a number of nonprofit clients while at Northridge Interactive. Eric contributes regularly to the Online Marketing Council and was recently elected to the position of Vice Chair of the Web Analytics committee. Eric began his career as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army -- but now the color of his parachute is "marketing".

He hopes the salsa dancing will help in this regard.
