After 6-years in the Navy, he got his start in radio while working on a BA in Communication at the University of Texas at Arlington. He worked in radio for over a decade before making the transition to TV News, and then theater and film. Eric is excited about publishing his first book "Trip of a Lifetime", because it combines his past experiences with his love for science and fantasy.

He later completed a BS in Geoscience from Mississippi State University and an MS in Environmental Science from the University of Texas at San Antonio.
