I'm Eric. I'm a photographer based in Los Angeles, though my background is in journalism and the law. I went to Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism and worked at latimes.com during summers producing web content, editing photos, and writing articles for the LA Times. Though I loved photography and journalism, I made the mistake of going to law school (UC Berkeley (Boalt Hall)) and then worked for years as a patent litigator at a prominent law firm in Los Angeles. Finally I came to my senses and realized my passion was interacting with people as a photographer, not a lawyer.
I grew up in Santa Monica, Calif., and preferred spending time in Santa Monica High School's dark room than at the beach a few blocks away. Now I live in the hills of Northeast LA with my wife, Lauren, daughter, Hannah, and Brittany, Barley. Though I grew up a city boy, I love hiking, backpacking, hunting, and fishing.
