Eric was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in the shadow of the University of Michigan, where he went on to get a bachelor's degree in English and a minor in Philosophy. He fell in love with the act of creating images when he was six years old, becoming an avid drawer. One year later a cheap, neon-green "toy" camera was one of his most prized birthday gifts.

After college, working in Rome and then New York, Eric found a good camera to be a steady companion in his explorations of these stunning cities. He rapidly taught himself photography, eager to learn everything he needed to know to make the images he sought to create - and to record cherished moments and people in his life.

While he is always learning new techniques and challenging himself with different equipment, Eric currently does the bulk of his work with a 35mm digital SLR.
