Eric was my first hire at Gazillion/SmartyCard and is complete rockstar. He was instrumental in developing our IP, interface and beautifully scripted and designed games. He's a natural leader, meticulous art director and superb developer. Eric's Flash/AS3 game design and development skills are superior and I cannot recommend him highly enough as an individual contributor or team lead.
