In 2001, Eric helped capture the most notorious spy in United States history: Robert Hanssen, a 25-year old veteran of the FBI. The remarkable true events of his life are the inspiration behind the critically acclaimed dramatic thriller Breach, starring Ryan Philippe as O’Neill.
Eric began his career in the FBI as a “Ghost” – an undercover field operative tasked to surveil and monitor foreign, national, and domestic terrorists and spies. During the Hanssen investigation, Eric worked directly undercover with the spy within the FBI’s Information Assurance Division, created to protect all classified FBI intelligence.
Currently, Eric runs The Georgetown Group, a premier investigative and security consultancy out of Washington DC.
