Eric was born and raised right here in Western New York. He met his beautiful wife, Kelly, in 1997 and they were married shortly thereafter. In 2002, he graduated from Buffalo State College with a B.S. in Elementary Education. From 2006 through 2021, Eric worked as a Correction Officer for the NYS Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.

Eric and his wife have four loving children, Isabel, George, Henry, and Katherine. The entire family enjoys the outdoors, exploring and enjoying the wonders of God’s creation, whether camping, hiking, kayaking, picnicking, or backpacking. In addition, they love to take road trips! They have travelled up and down the east coast, out to the Mississippi, and even as far as Big Bend National Park in Texas. Eric takes great delight in quality literature, and he enjoys studying and conversating in the fields of theology, philosophy, and sociology. Eric's prayer is that God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ be known and glorified through the life of his family, in local communities, and around the world!
