Story
Tagline
Editor, eLWmag.com -- Media Strategy and eLearning Design
Introduction

Eric and his wife, Betsey, raise their five kids in Minneapolis. They were fine with two, running a man-to-man defense, but when the twins were born in February 2008, they switched to a zone defense and have used all their time-outs. Still they manage to blog a bit and see the occasional friend.

This keeps Eric out of trouble: editing elwmag.com, elearning design,reading, writing, blogging, and social media, and parenting.
