Eric grew up listening to music and playing music as a way of life. In school he studied music technology, mathematics, and electrical engineering. He completed a Ph.D. from the Ohio State University, where he focused on digital signal processing. He is as passionate about mixing music as he is about creating software for mixing music. Currently he is focused on creating educational resources for audio engineers who want to create their own tools for mixing.
