Eric David is a journalist and writer who covers emerging trends in technology and video games, such as augmented reality and artificial intelligence. He is an avid gamer and computer geek, and his only platform loyalty is to the gaming PC he built for himself.
Eric spent the last three years covering technology industry news and events for SiliconANGLE. He has also contributed articles to local technology news outlets such as Dallas Innovates and LaunchDFW.
He has interviewed startup founders and entrepreneurs, attended major industry events like South by Southwest Interactive, and listened to more corporate earnings calls than he cares to remember.
Before becoming a full-time writer, Eric worked more than eight years as a data entry and compliance expert, where he earned the office reputation as “the guy who can make MS Excel work.” Believing that there was always an easier way to do something, he has collected skills in MS Office, HTML, Photoshop, and any other tools that solve more problems with less work.
Eric graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in Literary Studies from the University of Texas at Dallas. He earned senior honors for his thesis titled “A Culture of Heresy: Explaining the Resiliency of Catharism and the Church's Response,” which is every bit as exciting as it sounds.
"Technology doesn't need to be intimidating, and it definitely shouldn't make your life harder. Most tech skills are like changing a flat tire: Anyone can learn how to do it, and it could save you from a major headache one day."
