Where in the World is…

…Eric? Most likely racing down a mountain on a bike, chasing a little white ball around the links, or taking it to the net.

Lights, Camera, Action!

Eric’s favorite movie and movie line come from the cult classic, Caddyshack – “Let’s do the same thing, but with gophers.” Go for it.

Dear Eric…

Advice to those looking to break into engineering: “Find something special to focus on. It might be a technical aspect, or a role, or simply an idea. When you leave the office at the end of the day, what creeps back into your head? What do you find that you’re always thinking about? THAT is what you need to focus on. But whatever it is, find a way to make it special, make it unique, make it you. Be the best there is at that.”
