During his time with the organization, he served in many facets: business development, business management, fundraising, marketing, admissions, and show development. A published songwriter of over 20 songs performed in 21 countries, Eric was inducted into the Up with People Songwriters’ Hall of Fame in 2016.
Eric believes strongly in the power of the arts and formed a production company, Key2Change, during the pandemic. K2C is a production, ideation, and strategic consulting company with the foundational belief that the arts are key to inspiring and initiating positive change.
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).
