Eric is an accidental artist by way of formal design training. He attended Auburn University’s school of Industrial Design and obtained a Bachelors of Industrial Design in Product Development. After graduation Eric moved to Chicago to design furniture and unexpectedly built a photography studio with his wife and a fabrication shop to experiment with prototyping and batch production. One of his projects landed him in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2012. Since then he has become a father who is focused on sustaining a work life balance between the worlds of tech and craft.
As a mechanism to explore an idea planted by his father, he set to to carve 100 pieces in 100 days using a method mastered by Stephen Hogbin buried between the pages of a 1980’s issue of Fine Woodworking. The result was a labor organized into three groups culling the original 100 down to 57 individual works.
