Eric has been a leader in event production at non-profit organizations for over 20 years where he led the event production at Seafair, one of the largest events in the Northwest. He led the team to set the vision of Seafair's events and developed the business model to make the festival financially sustainable.

Eric has managed volunteer and staff to engage civic leaders, sponsors, vendors, government agencies, and performers to create mutually beneficial relationships. In recent years, Eric has earned a number of credentials in Emergency Management and has been a leader on a volunteer team that supports Seafair's largest events.
Eric has also led support technology initiatives that allow small teams to manage large projects online such as ticketing, volunteer management, website, e-commerce, event production databases, and production quality maps.
When Eric is not producing events, he loves to travel internationally with his family, play with new tech gadgets and road trip to college football games.
