At 44, Erik has spent much of his life in service to others. He has been a volunteer First Responder for more than 25 years and is a proud recipient of the New York City Mayoral Award for Heroism & Bravery. He worked his way through college as a 911 operator and public safety communications specialist.
Much of his professional career has been spent solving problems. In the technology arena, he was deeply involved in what has become known as the dot.com bubble, the period in our history during which the Internet became part of our lives. In key roles with several major web entities, Erik has always looked at technology as a means to solve problems or do things better. His frustration with the lack of communication during school emergencies led him to create Share With 911.
Erik has been involved in the public education space since 2003 when he became a school board member in his hometown. Since 2009, he has served as an education technology specialist with a school board association of nearly 600 public and charter schools.
When Erik disconnects, he can be found on his bike, holding his camera and playing with his kids. He has a BA in Communications from Ramapo College of New Jersey.
