Erik likes solving problems that are important to a client, ideally problems that go to the heart of their business. After almost 20 years of doing this, he has learned that IT is complimentary to most businesses and should serve as an enabler, something he feels a lot of IT departments have lost sight of. He enjoys both hands on technical work, leading by example and mentoring. When he is not working he prefers to spend his time outdoors far away from technology, as no matter what humans build nature beats us every time.
