I'm Eric and I do [and love] design! For as long as my memory stretches backwards, I have deeply enjoyed making things. This childhood playtime activity of mine has grown into a budding career path and I couldn't feel any more blessed and privileged than to get to be part of the creative world. The process and impact of art and design has always fascinated me and given me a kind of excitement and fulfillment that I have yet to find in anything else. As a young designer, I am always learning, always growing, always working, always striving to improve as an artist and as a person and always loving life and what I have chosen to do with it! Being a designer means I'm one of the lucky people that gets to do something extraordinary with my skills! I am truly thankful.
