David Erickson's Biography

The future is my favorite subject.

In retrospect, it is clear to me that I'd been preparing for my career since I was a kid reading my brother's classic science fiction novel collection.

I had no idea at the time that reading Isaac Asimov, Athur C. Clarke, Robert Heinlein, and Frank Herbert would help me succeed as a digital marketer but it has. My love of science fiction has trained me to think about how current technology may  be combined with other technology and evolve.


I am currently Director of Integrated Digital and Social Media at Tunheim, a strategic communications agency in Minnesota. In that role, I help clients develop strategies to reach and be understood by the audiences that are most important to their success.

While these strategies typically include all digital communication channels, right now I am heavily focused on how artificial intelligence is changing the digital communications landscape.
