Eric at Los Angeles Tattoo Expo, 2008
I'm a second generation Los Angeleno who loves the big, sprawling, dirty urban mishmash I call home. I'm also one of the few people on the planet who loves Jakarta, Indonesia, which in its own way is similar to Los Angeles, so you can take what I say with a grain of salt—or not.

For the better part of 30 years I've worked as a writer, photographer, editor, publisher and publishing consultant. As a writer I've covered a wide range of topics, including business, economics, finance, politics, arts, culture, sports, travel and I once even wrote an advice to the lovelorn column for a bi-lingual English and Chinese fashion magazine. At the moment I'm writing books, both fiction and non-fiction, and the occasional magazine article.

I spent 11 years living in Asia, based in Hong Kong, then Jakarta, but always traveling a great deal for both work and fun.

I now live in Clarksdale, Mississippi, the beating, throbbing, steaming heart of the Mississippi Delta—home to the blues, some mighty fine literature, some fantastic visual arts, a bunch of great and interesting people, the richest agricultural soil on the planet and food that will kill you sooner or later but will be very tasty while doing it.
