Personal life and interests

I’m a born-and-raised Seattleite, and a North Capitol resident for the past 16+yrs where I live with my wife Tina and our twin boys. Our neighbors rock and I couldn’t wish for a better place for my kids to grow up. We got bit by the international travel bug many years back and are always on the look for a new destination.  I enjoy: live music, Grandma’s home-made Pho, the Seahawks, Twitter and Gaming with my boys.

I’m proud of the charitable contributions we’ve been able to make over the years, both personally and with Slalom Consulting.
Thanks for taking a look.
Take care, Eric.

A day on Lake Como

We spent Wed. afternoon touring the lake via boat with our guide, Pauolo. The weather was perfect, low 70's and light clouds. There's an extensive ferry system on the lake, so we were waving to people all day long, buongiorno! They let the kids steer the boat as we hopped...

UX Changes to the Site

By | Design, Uncategorized, UX
With all the hype about the iWatch, iPhone 6 and Apple payments, you might have missed some fairly substantial design changes to the site. In general terms it looks as if they are embracing Jonny Ive's  iOS 7 esthetic.  Adieu gradients and boxes, perhaps we'll meet again another day.
