Eric studied music at Vanier College in Montreal majoring in piano. He then decided that musicians stay up too late and he’d better find another interest since he’s a morning person. So he got a degree in computer engineering from Concordia University and became a software developer. But throughout his career in computers as a programmer, team leader, architect, analyst, and trainer, he never lost his passion for the creative arts.
Sprinkled in with his software development work, he has written musical scores for computer games, designed the lights for stage plays, and fed his passion for photography and videography. He’s a compulsive learner and loves to experiment and tinker, constantly gaining new understanding about a wide variety of subjects. His latest passion is cinematography and how it, along with a well crafted musical score, can reinforce a film’s mood and message.
