Eric loves living in South Philly's East Passyunk neighborhood. Before moving to Philadelphia in 2009, he spent some time on the "dark side" producing web content at MTV Networks in New York. Eric did some freelance work for WNYC, but prior to that he lived in Minneapolis and produced websites and email newsletters for many of Minnesota Public Radio's programs. Highlights from that time include meetings with a barefoot Garrison Keillor in his office, biking around the beautiful lakes of Minneapolis, and eating plenty of cheese curds, corn dogs and pronto pups at the Minnesota State Fair every year. Eric is originally from Michigan and wears his Detroit Tigers cap with pride.
