the man behind the scenes
Founder and Executive Director
Eric is a graduate of Western University. He holds an Honours Business Administration and a Master of Science in Analytics from Ivey Business School, and an Honours in Economics from Western University. He previously worked in economic and manufacturing research, private equity and business development. He also worked as an analytics consultant at PwC where he worked on various projects including utilities, finance, economic research, AI and HR.
Eric is a high-energy individual who is passionate about life and holds firm to his values. During his last year of University, Eric thought about his life goals and value system. Having been part of different non-profit organizations, he realized that social impact had always been a great part of his life. He wanted his passion to continue bringing social good to those in need. When he noticed that there weren’t many firms that were affordable enough for non-profit organizations and SMEs, he decided to create his own. (Watch the short video to find out how he came up with the idea of AAARL!)
He is also the instructor of AAARL’s various workshops including Introduction to Data Science, Introduction to R, and Data Visualization. He has experience teaching undergraduate and master students in economics, data science, and technology and knows how to keep his audience engaged. His approach is hands-on, interactive, fun and understandable to people with various levels of proficiency.
Aside from work, he is an avid volunteer, painter, and motorcycle rider. And he would never pass on a coffee offer! Email him or connect with him on LinkedIn!
