Hello there! I'm Eric Workman, a software engineer(ing manager/director) with a penchant towards people and infrastructure. I enjoy learning new skills, teaching others, and getting creative with problems. Outside of work, you can find me tinkering with Elixir and Go, woodworking, cooking, enjoying far too much coffee, playing board games, cutting things with a laser, bicycling, visiting all of the National Parks, and creating digital art. Although I'm not originally from Ohio, I live here with my wife, Brianne, and son, Elliot.

If you need to get in touch or want to see my detailed résumé, please contact me by email at [email protected] or on LinkedIn. Find some of my code and projects on GitLab.

This site is written with Hugo, using a custom template with Tailwind CSS. It is hosted as a static website in AWS. It works pretty well for me. Golang is a new adventure.
