He is a member of Actor's Equity and SAG and has done a variety of regional theatre, commercials, independent film projects, industrials, improv, and other performing.

At Wilson Eric directed the senior play, the male version of The Odd Couple, was assistant director for The Tavern and Voice of the Prairie. He was Biondello in Taming of the Shrew, Scanlon in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and appeared in South Pacific and Anything Goes.

Eric's drama teacher in high school, Julie Accuardi, is thrilled to hear about Eric. "He is an outstanding and multi talented artist," says Julie. "At Wilson Eric took on both the roles of actor and director. He was terrific on stage, with a great sense of comic timing. He is also a wonderful director. His production of The Odd Couple was hilarious, and his cast absolutely loved working with him. I have some photos of that
