Erik Eason has been a Mötley Fool member since 1998. Trained in physics and astronomy, his focus naturally gravitates to technology; but don't be surprised when his curiosity takes him afield. He began his career in the aerospace industry working on next generation orbital satellites. Erik credits his parents and grandparents for his interest in business and the stock market. He is a graduate of Rice University; a hidden gem in the heart of Texas. Hoot 'em Owls!
