Today, when most people hear that someone’s from New Jersey images of the overly tanned and overly manicured cast from Jersey Shore, comes to mind. No one person would assume that someone like Eric Pulier, with his net worth of multi-millions earned from software development, came out of the same Garden State as Snookie and J-Woww. However, Eric Pulier did have humble beginnings in the Garden State before becoming a modern day Renaissance man. Pulier, despite his fortune mainly being from software related ventures, is a man of many talents.
Author, inventor, philanthropist, parent, and entrepreneur encompasses all of who Eric Pulier is in his entirety. Pulier actually majored in English and American Literature at Harvard University. He wrote for the school’s newspaper, the Harvard Crimson, injecting each piece he wrote with wit and sapience. He has since published articles in Forbes and Mannings Publications. Pulier has invented many systems from cloud computing. His inventions and contributions to cloud computing development touches everywhere today as many software systems rely on cloud computing to store their data.Eric Pulier in addition to being generally impressive is also impressively generous. His main focus in his philanthropic endeavors is to use technology to help those suffer socioeconomically and handicapable children not only here in the United States but around the world as well. Earlier in his career, Pulier created an educational program to help those with Multiple Sclerosis, or MS, that aimed to teach those suffering from MS about their disease. It was one of the first multimedia learning program established. In 2010 he was honored for his contributions in bringing state-of-the-art technological solutions to healthcare efforts in Africa. He is still a board member for the Painted Turtle summer camp created for terminally ill children. More recently Pulier has been involved in the “Campaign for Free College Tuition” which aims to provide every US citizen college tuition free of charge. He certainly strives to change the world for the better and I’m sure the fact that he is a father of four only motivates him more. He candidly has described his days as of a dad as a tornado of mostly unplanned activities although he attempts to keep a schedule. To date, Eric Pulier has founded and cofounded 15 different companies. Most recently Pulier has founded vAtomic Systems which specializes digitalizing goods, services, discounts that can be traded for real, physical items, or simply stored on digital platforms.
