Eric is happy to return to the Denver Children’s Choir, where he previously served as Executive Director in the early 2000’s and Board President from 2010-2012. Eric is passionate about the power of the arts, music education equity, and nonprofit capacity building. In addition to his past roles with the DCC, Eric most recently served as the Executive Director for Elevations Foundation and dedicated over two decades of service to Up with People (SVP and Artistic Director). A Colorado native and Air Force brat, Eric grew up in Western Europe, where he gained a global mindset and an appreciation for international cultures. A published songwriter, his background includes an education in music and theater and a post-graduate degree in management and leadership. Eric geeks out on craft beer and musical theatre, loves running and playing guitar (not at the same time), and is a lifelong fan of the Denver Broncos. Eric’s biggest accomplishments are being married to Jill, and producing two energetic teenage boys who just taught their puppy to do her business outside (mostly).
