Eric Michael Kochmer's educational background is uniquely in Experimental Theater, as he graduated with a BA in Theater from Marymount Manhattan College, and while there, mentored for a year under Elizabeth Swados at LaMama Theater.

Since 2010, Kochmer has been involved with the film collective and production company We Make Movies, Inc., of which he is VP of Content, and regularly consults on films, series, internet projects, and branded content as part of his work detail.
As a producer, line producer, and associate producer, Kochmer has worked on over 70 short films, numerous television episodes, and a handful of feature films. He made his directorial debut in 2014 with feature film Way Down In Chinatown and has since directed three more features, four series, and a variety of short films.
