About Eric

I have represented entrepreneurs and growing companies in Los Angeles for over a decade, as a lawyer and consultant. Clients include Fullscreen, Wittlebee, Tradesy, Eventup, Citrusbyte, Column Five Media, Lean LA, Survly and others.

From 2007-2009, I was VP Bus. Dev. and General Counsel at Audiolife, a direct-to-fan e-commerce platform for musicians. I helped the company raise $5M, pivot to launch, and they ultimately exited last year.

From 2009-2012, I founded Music180, a next-gen artist development community and marketplace. We raised $2M from Pasadena Angels, local angels and Originate, and built the largest network of music professionals in the world. I also executed major partnerships with brands and companies.

I mentor at Lean Startup Machine and Startup Weekend, and I've spoken at UCLA, Coloft, io/LA, Lean LA, ROC, CMJ, ASCAP Expo, Business Rockstars, Silicon Beach Fest and many other conferences and events.
