eDiplomacy programs include a set of integrated knowledge leadership platforms (SearchState, Diplopedia, Communities@State, Corridor, The Current) that allow State employees to find what they need and empower them to share what they know.  In addition, eDiplomacy's Diplomatic Innovation Division manages programs that use new technologies and ways of doing business to help further State's goals (Innovation Fund), broaden participation in diplomacy (the Virtual Student Foreign Service), empower local civil society (TechCamp), and increase dialogue between U.S. diplomats, technologists, and innovators (Tech@State). Its Customer Liaison Division advocates for the technical and technological needs of domestic offices and overseas posts.

During this time, he also served as OMS to Ambassador William McCormick for eight months.

Eric holds an M.A. in Political Science from Central European University in Budapest, Hungary and still considers Central and Eastern Europe his home away from home. He also holds a B.A. degree in Politics from Washington & Lee University,where he was also actively involved in community radio, television, and print media.
