Texas Monthly once wrote of Eric's hometown — Wichita Falls — that being a full time resident there is one of the six worst jobs in the state. So, sooner rather than later, he moved to Denton, Texas, where he attended the Texas Academy of Math and Science at the University of North Texas, graduating in 2003.
In 2007, Eric graduated, magna cum laude, with a B.A. in Math from the University of the South in Sewanee, TN. While a student, Eric co-authored the book Ecce Quam Bonum, a pictorial history of the university and community.
In February of 2007, Eric moved to D.C. and started on Capitol Hill as a Policy Analyst for the House Republican Policy Committee. While working for Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, Chairman of the HRPC — an elected leadership post — Eric was introduced to the emerging realm of social media, which House Republicans lead the way in embracing.
In 2009, he started as the Executive Director of the Congressional Health Care Caucus under the leadership of Rep. Michael C. Burgess, M.D. He joined the Engage Team in December of 2009.
At Engage, Eric is focused on Congressional clients and digital advertising. In 2010, Eric helped Engage candidates capture three of the six most competitive districts in the country.
Eric is an active parishioner of Old St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Chinatown. In his free time, you can find him at the movie theatre or NASCAR races.
