Eric spent so much time with a nose in a book growing up that his parents were afraid he'd end up New York City's most well-read homeless man. Fortunately, he looked up from a book long enough to head off to University of Chicago, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa, with the highest GPA in the philosophy department. Also at UChicago, Eric was Dean's List all four years, and his senior thesis won the prize for best essay in practical philosophy. Eric is currently a law student at the University of Chicago.
Eric has taught in private, public, and charter schools from Philadelphia to Chicago to Colorado and has guided students writing essays for college and law school admissions. After graduating college, Eric taught English for two years and then worked as a research assistant at Harvard, editing articles, books, and even a TED talk. Now a law student, Eric still tutors, helping students find confidence and motivation in themselves, allowing them to reach their potential.
While in college, Eric convinced the University of Chicago to give him $3,000 in his attempt to bake the world's largest muffin (a failure) and $2,000 for a pig roast (an epic success). While not baking muffins and roasting pigs, Eric loves to hike, bike, and bake sourdough bread.
