Deeply inspired by storytelling, Eric immerses himself in the fabric of the land looking for the threads that connect everything together and weaving himself, and those around him, into it all.
Eric has been hooked on primitive skills since he was 11, when he first put a burning coal to wood and made a bowl as part of a nature summer camp. Since that moment he has immersed himself in deep nature connection. He graduated from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry with a B.S. in Natural History and Interpretation. He has led the Conservationists in Training Program at Cranberry Lake Preserve, taught Stealth Tracking and Archery with Trackers Earth in Portland Oregon, spent a year teaching week long residential nature connection in California with San Mateo Outdoor Education, and founded the Naturalist Apprenticeship Summer Program at Muscoot Farm. His passions are ever evolving, and you can find him climbing a boulder as often as you can with a good pair of birding binoculars or a carving knife. Eric still has that first coal-burnt bowl, and finds connecting people to the same skills that inspired him each and every day fills it up to the brim.
