A LITTLE ABOUT ME

As a child, Eric’s contributions to advertising were disappointing at best. So after graduating from Williams College, he took his incredibly pertinent Political Economy degree to the Creative Circus. Two years and one portfolio later, Eric became Goodness Manufacturing’s fifth – and lankiest – hire. 

Eric has subsequently created integrated branding campaigns for Tile, Nest, Lay's, Lego Star Wars, El Pollo Loco and the National Congress of American Indians, among others. Along the way, he became a Creative Director at Trailer Park. After a delightful stint freelancing, Eric hopped back on the full-time train with the good folks at Deutsch LA.

When he isn’t burning the midnight oil, Eric enjoys masters swimming, nerdy board games and tending to his budding (pun very much intended) bonsai collection.

FOUR THINGS OF WHICH I'M PROUD

• Sparking a national conversation about the insensitivity of the mascot of the Washington Professional Football Team

• Leading the creative efforts of Trailer Park's Neutrogena global AOR pitch win

• All the incredibly talented people I’ve had the pleasure of working with and learning from 

• My 4.9 star Uber passenger rating
