A colleague once described Erik as a maestro tapping out masterpieces on the keyboard of his Avid like Mozart composing symphonies at the piano. While Erik shrugs off the comparison, he brings precision, efficiency and the highest level of artistry to every project he works on. That deft hand and keen eye is also on display in his many hobbies ranging from award-winning nature photography to highly prized handcrafted leatherworks. Another co-worker lamented with equal parts admiration and frustration, “Is there nothing he can’t do?” He destroys all challengers on the office ping pong table, wins championships on the company bean bag court and even works wizardry with Crayolas at occasional coloring club sessions. He’s a Renaissance Man in a vintage T-shirt.
