Eric Pulier began his love for computers at an early age when he began programming computers in the fourth grade. That drive to be different and to be at the forefront of learning has helped turn him into one of the brightest minds in the technological world. Puller is an author, an entrepreneur, and a leader in using technology in many different fields. He has used technology as a way of helping others throughout his adult life and he has focused on helping those who have health and mental issues. In the mid 1990s, Eric Pulier worked with Steven Spielberg, Peter Samuelson, and Norman Schwarzkopf Jr to create the first ever private social media platform. This platform was designed specifically to connect children with chronic illnesses around the world so that they would know they are not alone in what they are going through. Pulier has continued to use his intelligence and technological aptitude to help others. He graduated from Harvard, started numerous successful businesses, won many prestigious awards, and has worked with well-known stars and politicians throughout his career. However, his greatest achievement is not found in his awards, his colleagues, his genius, or even his successful ventures. His greatest achievement is found in the number of people he has helped through his philanthropic giving and leadership. He sits on the board of X-Prize Foundation which is a nonprofit organization that sponsors competitions to “solve humanities greatest problems.” He also sits on the board of “The Painted Turtle” which is a nonprofit that runs camps for kids with chronic illnesses. He is generous with his time, his expertise, and his financial resources and that is what will define Eric Pulier’s life.
