About Eric

My greatest passion is telling life-affirming stories that are both entertaining and enlightening. I believe that humanity needs great stories for our continued survival.

The short films that I have written, directed, or produced have screened at multiple festivals and won many awards, including "Best Short" on .

I write because it’s my vocation. To me vocation means such a deep connection between the work and the person doing it that there can be no separating the two. Birds fly, cats meow, and I write. My dream is to share inspiring stories with a large audience.

My writing has been called, "creative, complex, and original." I believe I have a strong eye and ear for detail which gives me the ability to write sharp action description and actable dialogue.

In my career as a freelance film & TV editor my main client is the NFL Network. I am also a nature-loving Eagle Scout and graduate of USC with an MFA in Film & TV Production.
