I have known Erick Tsiknopoulos since 2007, at which time he studied Tibetan language under me.
Erick has persevered in his studies of higher Buddhist learning and foreign languages over the years, without pause. He has translated a large number of both canonical and non-canonical documents, and has worked under many of the important Dharma teachers in India and Nepal. His work is widely known in the Tibetan Buddhist community. His motivation and demonstrated commitment are beyond question.
I believe that Erick is making and will continue to make a genuine contribution to the Dharma, and wish him every success.
