Work and contribution to the government
In 1991, Eric Pulier relocated to Los Angeles, where his career kicked off. His first activity involved the formation of People Doing Things (PDT), a digital company that offered information about education, healthcare and other industries in the country. Later in 1994, he launched Digital Evolution, an interactive agency, which was merged with US Interactive in 1998.
He pioneered the construction of Starbright World, a social network designed to allow chronically ill children connect with the world through chat, blogs and content. During the inauguration of the president and his vice in 1997, Pulier was picked to lead the creative team that would handle the technology exhibition during that event. He created several sections for the program and came up with an idea that allowed a live interaction with shuttle astronauts.
He has since grown into an internationally acclaimed technologist and entrepreneur with great enthusiasm for supporting humanity and any projects that are meant to bring change in the society.
