After beginning his fund raising career in 1986 with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Eddie moved into Catholic fund development in 1990, first with the Archdiocese of Atlanta, then as a consultant to many other Catholic organizations. His area of concentration has been planned and major gift development and capital campaigns. A long-time member of the National Catholic Development Conference, he received its 2009 George T. Holloway Award for Distinguished Service.

His gratitude for his ongoing education, beginning in grade school and continuing today, by women and men religious makes SOAR!’s mission an important part of his life and work. When he’s not trying to find his way through the western part of the US or navigating Los Angeles traffic, Eddie enjoys reading and writing.
