About Eric Chia

www.chiaweb.com

Eric has helped TalkingwithHeroes.com since December 2005 and he and Bob Calvert have known each other years prior to 2005.

Eric has been involved with web design, internet marketing, eCommerce, Search Engine Optimization, and internet business applications since 1995. He loves “the

internet and enjoy what I am doing helping small businesses with their internet marketing and website development projects. I work from my home office and enjoy working without traffic jams and office politics.

I love cooking and many of my friends enjoy the home style Malaysian/Chinese dishes I cook that are not served in Chinese restaurants here in the Kansas City area. I cook for fun and for relaxing my mind. Since I came from a fisherman family, seafood and eating fresh fish are right at the top of the list. There are many lakes in the Greater Kansas City area that you can catch nice fish like wiper, trout, white bass, largemouth bass, catfish, crappie, blue gill, walleye, etc.

There is nothing better than enjoying fresh catch of the day from these lakes. My wife, Michelle Kee, (www.michellekee.com) is crazy about fishing and fishes

more than me. Check out my fishing album showing the many fish we caught including the Kansas State record Rainbow Trout I caught in March 2010.

I spent my early life in Malaysia and later in the United Kingdom from 1974 to 1980 obtaining my technical education. I graduated from Bradford University with

a degree in Manufacturing Systems Engineering. I enjoyed every bit of my life in U.K. and visited most of the countries in Europe. I came from a conservative

traditional Chinese family background and always believe in traditional family values and alternative health.

My goal in life is to use the skills that God has given me to help others and spread the love of Jesus. I am involved with Project Partner (www.projectpartner.org) volunteering my time supporting its activities as well as designing and maintaining the Project Partner website.

If you are interested in starting a home based business and need help on website design, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), internet marketing, eCommerce, outsourcing, etc., please email to eric@chiaweb.com and let me know your ideas. I will provide you with some initial FREE advice.
