A native of Baltimore city, Eric is currently an IT Manager at UPS, Inc. He proudly served in the U.S. Army as a Combat Signal Soldier and Paratrooper in the 197th Infantry and 11th Special Forces Group(A) in an active and reserve capacity. With a desire and love to help “…Create fishermen who can fish for themselves and others,” Eric coached youth football for 14 years in Baltimore Recreation programs. He continues to educate and teach our youth to become “fishermen” by volunteering as a Robotics Team Coach for four local community based VEX IQ robotics teams in Baltimore. BmoreSTEM provides an opportunity for Eric to create a Culture of Service and provide a Service to Humanity by his example of service; something he learned and aspired to achieve over 30 years ago when he earned membership into Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. which subscribes to the same principle.
