After having worked as a digital modeler at some of the top car design studios in Europe and the US, Eric joined a start-up digital render / creative house in L.A. where he hired & managed an extraordinary team of 8 young designers. Changing gears yet again, he launched his own independent consultancy during Spring 2010 & now works with a variety of clients in the aerospace, automotive, film, product, and toy design industries.
