In the time that I’ve known Eric I have found him to be one who takes each experience he is involved with as an opportunity to expand his understanding and add to his sense of reality. He finds the lesson and blessing in those experiences and looks for new adventures to enhance his growth. Eric has impressed me in the ways that he routinely thinks outside of the box, imagining more effective ways to do accomplish goals. I have enjoyed his upbeat attitude while working with him, and have seen the same as he interacts with his peers and university staff. Eric has held leadership positions in numerous academic and non-academic organizations and has used his analytical, problem-solving skills, maturity and creative outside-the-box thinking to enhance his well-rounded life perspective. Eric enjoys speaking with everyone he meets and embraces those opportunities to learn and develop deep friendships. I have absolutely enjoyed the chance to know Eric, and I am looking forward to watching and supporting his efforts in the years to come. I highly recommend this dynamic young man and confidently believe that he will be an asset to any organization that is aligned with his skills and passions.
