About Eric

I specialize in close-in coverage of breaking news events, filling in gaps in major network coverage. I designed a custom mobile journalism system that provides me with a more flexible platform to quickly broadcast and upload media. I’m constantly working on new ways to leverage advances in mobile technology, and further simplify the complex tasks required of any multimedia journalist. My focus on speed, mobility and simplicity gives me an ability to satisfy the ever-growing need for lightning-fast, concise, unbiased, and broadcast-quality news products. Whenever possible, I use drone and 360° video live-streams to create an unedited, immersive experience for viewers. I also produce documentary video and occasionally publish written news stories.
