Eric Pulier: An Author Of More Than Books

Not all authors write fiction only. Some author things like corporations, or philanthropic organizations. That’s what Eric Pulier does. The founder of numerous organizations, Pulier is also involved in a substantial number of charities. He is a father, four children under his charge, and he regularly works in technological climes. Eric Pulier continues to make outstanding technological and philanthropic contributions to society, and regularly engages audiences as a popular public speaker. Currently he functions as the Chief Technology Officer, Secretary, and Director of the Santa Monica Media Corporation. He is chairman of the U.S. Interactive, Inc. board, Executive Chairman of Soa Software, Director of Mediaplatform, Inc., and the trifold Co-founder, Chairman and CEO of ServiceMesh, Inc.

Though Mr. Pulier lives in Los Angeles currently, he is originally from the east coast. Growing up in New Jersey, Pulier was exceptionally talented even as a young man. In the fourth grade he was programming computers, and by the time he had grown into himself, Eric was at Harvard University. Eventually he would graduate Magna Cum Laude, though surprisingly enough, Eric did not actually obtain a degree in electronics, software engineering, or anything remotely technological. In fact, his degree was obtained in English and American Literature. Certainly he didn’t neglect technology–he did manage to sneak in a few MIT classes on the side; so his collegiate experience didn’t represent a complete abandonment of his technological passions. But Eric would later use his English degree in the composition of a book, so in the grand scheme it all makes sense.

Pulier graduated in 1988, and by 1991 he was on his way to the West Coast. Upon arriving in California, Pulier quickly established a technology organization concerned with finding technological solutions for educational and health-related needs. His continuing work in the region lead to national recognition when the Clinton administration commissioned him to head the 1997 Presidential Technology Exhibition.

There is quite a bit of software development that owes its very existence to Eric Pulier. Last but not least is Starbright World. Starbright World involved Steven Spielberg also, and the program acts as a means of communication between chronically ill children similarly affected. It’s a closed social network, and has been in operation since 1995.
