His Story

Eric is our Chief Information Officer. Ever since he was a teen, he’s been interested in the stock market. This interest morphed into a passion for data science — as a first step to understanding the stock market — and a career in financial technology with us. But these interests are not his only focus: Eric also likes to set his sights on the world through the lens of his camera.

Chasing the light as a photographer focuses Eric’s mind, so his eyes can see everything in a new light. Growing up in rural Colorado, Eric’s focus is a world he knows well — nature, wildlife and landscapes — from wide vistas to the smallest details. His photography speaks volumes about his love of light and how he uses it to create infinite photographic possibilities.

A scientist, an entrepreneur and an artist, Eric has also brought infinite data possibilities to Sundial Capital Research, single-handedly developing our data processing infrastructure and transforming Sundial into a premier source of state-of-the-art, data-driven research, analysis and tools. From capturing Big Sur to Big Data, his focused mind and photographic eye celebrates nature and science in a flash and hopefully inspires people to action.

For Eric, helping investors trade with a clear head starts with focus.

I like chasing light as a photographer. My photography may not be world-class, but it’s definitely an important part of my life. Each time I pick up my camera, I try to capture the world as I see it, from wide vistas to the smallest details. It focuses my mind, so my eyes can see things in a new light.
