People seem to like Eric because he is polite and rarely late. He likes to eat ice cream and really enjoys a nice pair of slacks. Growing up, he dreamed of being a Tyrannosaurus Rex until, at age 17, his father told him to "quit being a dinosaur and get a job."

When he's not quoting Will Ferrell movies, Eric enjoys cycling and watching baseball. Originally from Pittsburgh, Eric graduated with a B.S. in Secondary Education from Penn State University. Prior to joining the team at Industry Dive, Eric taught high school English in Northern Virginia.
