People

FLOWSPARK MEDIA is operated by founder and owner Eric R Olson with a rotating team of talented collaborators. Previous to founding FLOWSPARK, Eric worked as a digital producer for the highly-rated PBS television show NATURE. There he grew the show’s YouTube channel from around 5,000 to nearly 200,000 subscribers and Facebook followers from 250,000 to over three quarters of a million.

Other roles have included Scientific American‘s first full-time video producer where he saw equally impressive results and audio-video editor for the premier science journal Nature (which may make him the only person to have worked for both “Nature” brands.)

Eric is also an alumnus of New York University’s graduate-level science journalism program and holds a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the University of Washington. Previous to his career in media, Eric worked on the front lines of human genetics, investigating the genes that predispose women to breast cancer. 

When he’s not busy making movie magic he enjoys practicing martial arts, playing music, biking, cooking, and geeking out over evolution’s strangest creations. 

He currently resides in Brooklyn, NY with his wife and kids.
