COMPUTER SCIENTIST + AUTHOR + EDUCATOR
Greetings, I'm Eric Freeman.
Kathy Sierra described me as “one of those rare individuals fluent in the language, practice, and culture of multiple domains from hipster hacker, corporate VP, engineer, think tank”; that matches my career as an academic, media company executive, author and educator.
By training, I'm a computer scientist, having studied with industry luminary David Gelernter during my Ph.D. work at Yale University (a patent based on that work was just licensed by Apple Computer and Microsoft for over $30M). Professionally I've held positions at Disney (CTO, Disney Online), O'Reilly Media, NASA, Yale and a number of startups. I'm also a top selling technical author with over 1/2 million books in print.
Currently I'm a founding partner at WickedlySmart and the Freeman Gelernter Group; I also advise a number of technology startups.
